Can I drive someone else to work?

Only if the trip is essential, there is no other option of travelling alone and if all parties are from the same household

Can I travel to a different area for my daily exercise?

We advise people to only travel for essential journeys. We urge people to exercise near their home address, following government guidelines.

Can I meet friends for a walk?

No, you should only exercise with members of the same household.

Can I visit my friend at their home?                                                         

No, you should only travel for essential reasons.

-        Shopping for essential food

-        One form of exercise a day

-        A medical need

-        Travelling to an essential place of work

Can I go for a drive as long as I don’t exit the car?

We urge people to only travelling for essential journeys. The NHS is under pressure and more cars increases the likelihood of serious road traffic collisions.

Can I ride a horse?

This would be considered exercise. However, we would urge people to be reasonable about the amount of time they are outside and urge them to continue to adhere to social distancing.

Can I walk my dog?

Yes. One of the essential reasons to justify not staying from home is one form of exercise, which includes walking a dog.

Can I drive my camper van to another area of the country and stay in it?

No. You should reside at your primary residence unless engaging in essential travel. Driving to second homes puts extra pressure on the health and other resources of the county you are travelling to.

Can I travel to my second home/holiday home and stay there?

No. You should reside at your primary residence unless engaging in essential travel. Driving to second homes puts extra pressure on the health and other resources of the county you are travelling to.
