THE PRIME Minister, Boris Johnson has just announced a raft of restrictions people in the UK are being urged to follow.
— UK Prime Minister (@10DowningStreet) March 23, 2020
From tonight, people will be allowed to leave their homes for:
shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible
one form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle, alone or with members of their household;
any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person;
travelling to and from work, but only where it is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home
This is not a lockdown, but it’s as close as you can get to one without it being called a lockdown.
