Stay Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives

(Updated 05/01/21)

On Monday 4 January 2021, the Prime Minister announced a national lockdown is now in place for England. It's important we all do our bit, we must stay at home and should only leave for essential reasons. Read the national lockdown restrictions.

These restrictions will be made law as of Wednesday 6 January 2021 but the Government is asking the public to act now to protect the NHS and save lives.

Remember - ‘Hands. Face. Space.’:

  • hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
  • face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
  • space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)
  • download the NHS COVID-19 app - check in to venues you visit.

Also, letting fresh air into indoor spaces can reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus by over 70%. Read more on the importance of ventilation to reduce spread of COVID-19. Read more on the importance of ventilation to reduce spread of COVID-19.


We're working closely with our NHS colleagues and other local authorities to ensure that the people of Bassetlaw district are kept informed about Coronavirus (COVID-19).
