I’m a sex worker. What rules am I being told to follow? Expand The UK Government Guidelines are currently the same for everybody: You must stay home except to travel: to work where it is considered essential or you are a Key Worker to purchase essential food and medicines, for one instance of outdoor exercise a day close to your home. You must stay 2 metres or more from other people when you are outside, and even indoors if you are living with somebody having to self-isolate or who is otherwise vulnerable. The sooner we all heed precautions and adapt our behaviours, the more lives will be saved and less pressure will be put on healthcare systems. The guidelines are in place to prevent contact with someone who may be infected with COVID-19. Because of this, online sex work is still safe and viable as a form of income, whether you were doing this before or are thinking of doing so now.
