“These measures take effect straight away, and you can now only leave your home to shop for basic essentials, to do one form of exercise per day, for a medical need or if it’s necessary that you travel into work.
It’s really important that everyone follows this advice which is in place to try to slow down the spread of the virus and give us some time to help save more lives.

“Our amazing partners in the NHS and council colleagues working in areas like social care, with some of our most vulnerable elderly residents, are on the front line fighting against the effects of the virus. My thanks goes out to every one of them for everything they are doing to save as many lives as possible.
“We should also remember that we are all part of this coronavirus fightback and we all need to do our bit by following the NHS advice and staying at home.”
He added: “Our parks and open spaces remain open, but we are urging people to follow the latest public health advice while out and about.
“Playgrounds, gyms - where they are fenced in - and games areas like tennis courts are now closed following concerns over crowds gathering and people shouldn’t be using the outdoor gyms or play equipment until it is safe again to do so.”
