geogphotos Posted April 16, 2020 Share Posted April 16, 2020 (edited) Coronavirus lockdown: Police guidelines give 'reasonable excuses' to go out Exercise guidelines On exercise, the guidance lists driving to the countryside for a walk as "reasonable" if "far more time" is spent walking than driving. But it adds that driving for a "prolonged period with only brief exercise" is not reasonable. That would appear to indicate that someone who drove for an hour to a beauty spot for a two-hour walk would not be contravening the rules. and Under the guidance, police are advised not to intervene if people stop to rest or eat lunch while on a long walk, but short walks to sit on a park bench are not allowed. "A very short period of 'exercise' to excuse a long period of inactivity may mean that the person is not engaged in 'exercise' but in fact something else," the guidance says. The document also clarifies that anyone can travel to work if it is not "reasonably possible" to work from home. However, it says it is not allowed for home-workers to "choose" to work in a park.
