What the Covid alert means
He said: “We knew there was some confusion about the new regulations so this was a really simple solution.
We cover the main points we all need to be aware of right now, such as households not mixing indoors and some of the limits on businesses.
There’s even a reminder not to forget how important it is to wash our hands regularly and thoroughly, wear face coverings and maintain physical distancing.Stuart Irvine, deputy director of finance
