We are working hard and have plans in place to ensure customers and staff are protected and essential services are maintained during the coronavirus outbreak. We regularly update this page, so please check back daily to get the latest information.

Follow the latest advice

With so much conflicting and often false information going round we're advising customers and colleagues to follow advice on how to prevent or minimise the spread of coronavirus from authenticated sources of information, including the NHS and Public Health England. In addition, colleagues working in our care and support schemes are following advice from the Care Quality Commission, the independent regulator of health and social care in England. You can also find the latest news and advice on the Government's website or why not join the Government's coronavirus WhatsApp service which provides official, trustworthy and timely information and advice. Find out more about the service and how to access it.

Latest update: 14 September

Restrictions come into effect today which ban indoor or outdoor social gatherings of more than six people of all ages from multiple households. The 'rule of six' has been introduced because of a rise in coronavirus cases. People will still be able to go to places such as pubs, restaurants, places of worship, shops and parks - just not in groups of more than six. Some gatherings of more than six are allowed in certain circumstances, for example: if there are more than six people in your household or support bubble; for work or education purposes; weddings and funerals; team sports that are organised in a way to limit the spread of coronavirus.
