Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates

The Importance of Going Into Quarantine

In light of the most recent government announcement, it is vital that people stay at home and only leave their homes for “very limited purposes.”

* Shopping for basic foods and necessities.

* One form of exercise a day, such as run, walk or cycle. This can be done alone or with members of your household.

* Any medical need- to give care or to help a vulnerable person.

* Travelling to and from work, but only if this is “absolutely necessary” and cannot be done from home.

If you contract Coronavirus, you and all household members must remain at home.

If possible, you should not go out even to buy food or other essentials, other than exercise, and in that case at a safe distance from others. The 14-day period starts from the day the first person in your house became ill.

If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you will need to ask friends or relatives. Alternatively, you can order medication by phone or online. You can also order your shopping online. Make sure you tell delivery drivers to leave items outside for collection if you order online. The delivery driver should not come into your home.

As an Abicare employee, if you are unable to work due to coronavirus, please refer to this guidance from the Department for Work and Pensions to find out about the support that is available to you.
