AT A GLANCE: National Lockdown

Andover National Lockdown January 2021

The message from UK government is simple: STAY AT HOME

You must treat this lockdown like the first one in March.

  • You cannot leave your home except for certain reasons
  • Those certain reasons include: essential medical needs, food shopping, exercise and work for those who cannot work from home
  • All schools and colleges will close to most pupils (remote learning is necessary until February half term)
  • Nurseries and ‘early years’ schools may stay open
  • End-of-year exams will not take place this summer as normal
  • University students should not return to campuses (students will be taught online)
  • Restaurants can only open to offer delivery for food
  • Takeaway alcohol is banned
  • Outdoor sports venues including gyms must close
  • Amateur team sports are not allowed
  • ‘Elite sport’ (like Premier League football) can continue
