On Monday, the Prime Minister announced a set of precautions described as 'social distancing' which everyone is advised to comply with for their protection and the protection of others.

The guidance is especially important for people aged over 70 years, those with underlying health conditions and pregnant women since these groups are particularly vulnerable to developing complications if they contract the virus.

But what does this mean and how will it affect those who need essential care? Read Barbara's new blog for the latest information and advice on social distancing and self-isolation.

As some questions deal with complex issues, they may take longer to respond to as we want to make sure we provide clear, factual and useful guidance. We'll share the full Q&As on our website soon.
