Coronavirus (COVID-19):

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. It’s important to stay cautious and help protect yourself and others. Please continue to follow national government advice.

Evacuation or shelter in-situ

In some circumstances, taking shelter in your own home/office (shelter in-situ), closing windows and turning off air conditioning etc. may be a safe option. Alternatively, evacuation from your home/office may be necessary.

The decision to shelter in-situ or to evacuate will be made by the agencies responding to the emergency and will be based on a risk assessment of the nature of the emergency and the environment at the time.

You will be informed of what you need to do via a number of channels that may include local radio, social media, public address systems or having someone knocking on your door.
