Coronavirus (COVID-19) Actions & Information

Boris Johnson and our Government are committed to keeping the public safe during the worst public health crisis of our generation. Preparing for the spread of the coronavirus outbreak is a national priority. And this Government will keep the public informed on how best to protect themselves on the Government website.

The Prime Minister and this Government are committed to keeping the public informed every step of the way about what we’re doing to fight the spread of coronavirus, when we’re doing it and why we’re doing it. At all times we will be led by the science to bring forward the right responses at the right time to this global pandemic.

The Prime Minister is also taking part in a number of technical meetings around modelling the outbreak and spread of coronavirus, to better plan next steps on protecting elderly and vulnerable people, as well as to discuss household isolation and mass gatherings.

For those with symptoms of coronavirus, the NHS has up-to-date guidance on what to do. The Government has also released clear stay-at-home guidance to those who need it.

For employers, those working in care homes, for those working in schools, and more, the Government has also published guidance on how to keep yourself and others safe.

This Campaign is about keeping you informed about Government Action and information to help us all minimise the short, medium and long term impact of Covid-19.
