Coronavirus: social distancing measures

Social distancing means limiting your contact with other people and keeping your distance if you go out. 

Government guidelines

The government is asking people to stay at home as much as possible and limit your contact with other people. You should make sure you regularly wash your hands.

In situations where you must maintain social distance, please keep 2m from others (or 1m+ if you are unable to keep to 2m and you are wearing a face-covering)

You must:

  • Wear a face-covering on public transport
  • Maintain social distance when you go out

Full government guidance

The Government have designed some badges and cards that you can show if you wish and have difficulties or concerns in maintaining social distancing.


Do your bit for Redbridge

We're asking all residents to ‘do your bit’ by protecting yourselves and others by supporting social distancing.

If everybody limits contact with people outside of their household we can all help to reduce the transmission of coronavirus and support the NHS from an unmanageable caseload.

If you need to go out please keep a safe distance of two metres or six feet away from anybody you pass on the street.

You might be young, strong, and healthy enough to fight off COVID-19, but others you spread it to might not be as lucky as you. Especially those in vulnerable groups, ‘do your bit’ and support social distancing.
