Anyone can spread the virus. See full government guidance
The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
When day-to-day contact with other people is reduced, we will reduce the spread of the infection. That is why the government introduced its new measures yesterday (23 March 2020).
