The fight against Covic-19 took a major step today. Effective immediately, the government says you can go outside only for “very limited purposes”:
- Shopping for basics necessities like food and medicine, with Downing Street saying you should do this “as infrequently as possible” and use food delivery services “where you can”
- One form of exercise a day, such as a run, walk or cycle. This can be done alone or with members of your household
- Any medical need, to give care or to help a vulnerable person
- Travelling to and from work, but only if this is “absolutely necessary” and cannot be done from home
“These four reasons are exceptions,” the government’s latest guidance says.
“Even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2m (6.5ft) apart from anyone outside of your household.”
