Boris Johnson clarifies if Britons can meet more than one person in a park – COVID rules
Social distancing rules amid coronavirus have been vague, and many have been confused about who they can meet. Now it has been clarified by Boris Johnson.
“You can go with members of your own household, but if you want to meet someone from outside your household it has to be you and that other person has a pair.
“It should be a one on one thing, with social distancing.”
Clarifying about groups of multiple people meeting, Boris address whether more than two people can meet but spread two metres apart.
He said: “Our answer to that at the moment is, that is pushing it too far.”
Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer for England, added: “We are trying to take very small steps that allow us to be sure we are not going to see an increase in transition again.
“We are going to have to make changes for a long period of time and making things sustainable is important.”
He added he hoped the new ruled do “not lead to people meeting with multiple people outside their households at once.”
Boris Johnson also revealed there is no limit to how far Britons can travel in new coronavirus rules.
The caller, who is from the Lake District, asked: “Will, there be a limit on how far people are allowed to travel for their exercise as, if not, surely people will just flock to some of the worst hit areas, such as the Lake District, which is surely neither safe nor wise?”
The PM responded: “A lot of people have been asking this. What we saying is we want people to use the outdoors to be able to exercise in an unlimited way outdoors but they’ve got to obey social distancing.
“So, there can’t be any question of people just going on holidays and staying in places like the Lake District. If they do go to exercise it’s got to be done with social distancing.”
