Government guidance for outdoor activities updated
The government’s guidance on “Getting help with daily activities outside your home during coronavirus” (opens Gov.UK website) has been updated on 3 March 2022 to reflect the ending of the self-isolation regulations. This guidance is for people who have a disability or are more vulnerable to coronavirus (COVID-19) and outlines some steps that can be taken by individuals and helpers to reduce the risk of getting COVID-19.
- You are no longer legally required to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with.
- If you feel more comfortable continuing to socially distance, you could use a ‘please give me space’ badge (Opens Gov.UK website).
- You can receive help outside your home from anyone. Guidance is also given on reducing the risk of transmission.
