  • Right now my whole house of 6 have Covid so we are in full lockdown. Before that we were still going out but being cautious. Unfortunately Covid is running rife through the schools so we knew it was inevitable that someone would bring it home sooner or later.

  • We’re still quite isolated, but sadly I think that’s a reflection of my life, not covid.

  • Still continuing only going out for necessities

  • 4 for my family

  • We’re sitting on 4 and have been since lock down. We no longer go to the shops whenever we feel like it but just go grocery shopping once a week or fortnight. We don’t socialise. Just staying put but enjoying our time at home.

  • We’re at 4, but we also have vulnerable people at home.

  • We are all staying home kids aren’t allowed to go anywhere no one is allowed to come and visit I only go once or twice a week to shops get everything I need quickly normally in the evening when it’s very quiet it’s safer for everybody

  • am luckily with my kids and husband. just going out for work, quick in and out trips to the shops just for necessities and also the occasional solitary walk.

  • 4- husband is essential worker so he is still working, he shops on his way home so kids are not going to supermarket. Doctors visits is the only reason we are leaving home- we have at risk parents and a newborn- I’m not taking any chances of losing the people I love

  • Life hasn’t changed too much for me. I don’t venture out often unless I have to. I am more aware of my surroundings when I do head out now

  • I have very low immunity due to a medical condition, I have self isolated for nearly 3 weeks. I haven’t been shopping for 4 weeks. I am running of perishable food so I am going shopping during the normally quiet time of the day. I suffer badly from Hayfever and always get a “wet” cough, not a dry one…..I have rested on my bed reading a book and fallen asleep a few times since my Hayfever started and I am bored. I’m also running out of books. Libraries are closed. A lot of people borrowed extra books before lock-down so they didn’t have many left anyway.

  • 4. stay at home stay alive.

  • Also husband going to work as he is in transport/logistics but taking precautions

  • 4. Still going to supermarket once a week

  • We’re a 4. I’m going to work as I luckily still have a job at the moment and to the shops bit that’s it. Kids are at home and we’re trying home schooling as best we can
