We can all help control coronavirus if we all stay alert. This means:
- Stay at home as much as possible
- Work from home if you can
- Limit contact with other people
- Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- Wash your hands regularly
- Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms
Is your journey necessary?
To help keep yourself and your fellow passengers safe, you should not travel if you are:
- experiencing any coronavirus symptoms
- self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms or sharing a household with somebody with symptoms
- clinically extremely vulnerable.
Before you travel, consider if your journey is necessary and if you can, stay local. Try to reduce your travel. This will help keep the transport network running and allow people who need to make essential journeys to travel. You can reduce your travel by:
- working from home where possible
- shopping less frequently and shopping locally.
