Whether your loved ones are abroad or just down the road, the new government rules mean no matter where they are, if they’re not in the same household as you then it means not being able to visit them for the foreseeable future.
If you want to keep yourself, your family, your friends and the NHS safe, then complying with the Covid-19 lockdown advice is the best thing you can do.
But, don’t panic because although you might not be able to go down to the pub together, thanks to technology there are plenty of ways you can stay in touch with your loved ones.
