Physical distancing

Physical distancing

We know that for some vulnerable people, taking some form of exercise outdoors is essential to their routine and to reduce their stress and anxiety. 

Guidance on exercise has been amended to allow travel to exercise  for this vulnerable group. 

This allows everyone, with a significant health condition to exercise more than once per day and to travel to do so. This is especially important for some cared for people who need to keep to their routines and ease their anxiety. 

Therefore, anyone who needs to travel to exercise can do so as long as they continue to remain at least two metres away from anyone who is not a carer or in the same household.
