From your home

Current government guidance permits you to leave your home to take exercise.

The guidance mentions walking, running and cycling. You can be accompanied other people you live with and/or your dog if you have one.

You should only travel locally (i.e. your journey should begin and end at your main home). 

If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times.

You should also keep your dog(s) away from other people and other dogs. The best way to do this is to keep them on a short lead. Please remember to clean up after your dog(s).
