The conventional news media and social media are awash with comments on the changes announced by the Prime Minister last Sunday. A question frequently asked is "What does "Stay Alert" mean?"
The official definition of what the Government means is to be found on its website Gov.UK page entitled "Coronavirus (COVID-19) – click here for the link.
The first page states:
"We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
* stay at home as much as possible
* work from home if you can
* limit contact with other people
* keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
* wash your hands regularly
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms"
