Can I still go for a walk independently?

In England, you can currently walk outdoors once a day as part of your daily exercise – by yourself, with members of your household or support bubble, or with one other person. From Monday 29 March, two households, or groups of up to six, will be able to get together for informal walks.

In Scotland a legal exemption allows unlimited local outdoor walks, provided you follow existing travel advice. You can walk in one household, or groups of up to two people from up to two households. There are separate exemptions for children aged 11 and under.  

In Wales you can walk outdoors by yourself, with a member of another household (socially distanced) or with other members of your household or support bubble. From Saturday (20 February) the number of people who can exercise together has been increased from two to four. They must come from a maximum of two households.

If you are clinically vulnerable (i.e. over 70 or with a listed underlying health condition) you are advised to take particular care to minimise contact with others outside your household.
