I posted this question on a other thread but haven't found an answer yet.
Agree paperMonster I'm in a very rural area and am looking forward driving 1/2 hour to the nearest beach that's 15 miles away to walk my dog and do a bit of the coastal path walk. Is this local? The most I have regularly travelled is 7 miles to my nearest town for the supermarket and vet (essential travelling).
tanith The Government's 'stay at home' order officially ends on Monday, March 29, and is set to be replaced with 'stay local' guidelines. I think quite a few haven't waited for this and gone much further than 5 miles for weeks now for non essential trips out.
This is a quote from a local newspaper:
Although the Government has stopped short of setting distances they deem acceptable, the Department of Health and Social Care has said: "People should be sensible – if you do leave home, you should stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live - unless there is a justifiable reason not to do so."
"Long-distance travel, while no longer illegal as of March 29, is not encouraged. But if you do have a justifiable reason for your journey, there are other strict rules that must be followed."
