Many people have contacted me with many questions about the lockdown restrictions which I continue to answer to the best of my ability. It is however concerning that a number are about ways to circumvent the restrictions in place. The law is now clear – STAY AT HOME except for work, exercise and medical appointments. Other exceptions are just that – exceptions, not norms.
Please stay safe and remain in your bubbles. It is not the virus that travels around, it is the people spreading it.
