The coronavirus outbreak means life for everyone has changed beyond recognition in the past five months - but how well do you really know the new rules?

Since early March the government has introduced more and more guidelines in a bid to limit the spread of the virus and to help keep the population healthy.

Advice started with regular, thorough hand washing and no longer shaking hands, soon avoiding large gatherings was the norm and then came the clear advice to stay at home to save lives.

But as the country has emerged from lockdown, new rules, which change with different settings and scenarios, have been introduced.

While some of the instructions are very clear, others have caused confusion with people interpreting the advice differently.
