People with specific health conditions will be allowed out more than once a day during the coronavirus lockdown, according to updated advice from the UK government.

The new rules state that those who need to leave the house to maintain their health, such as individuals with learning disabilities or autism who “require specific exercise in an open space two or three times each day”, are permitted to do so.

The new advice also states that it is still permissible even if it “involves travel beyond your local area”.

This outdoor exercise should ideally be in line with a care plan agreed by a medical professional.

However, the guidance says: “Even in such cases, in order to reduce the spread of infection and protect those exercising, travel outside of the home should be limited, as close to your local area as possible, and you should remain at least 2 metres apart from anyone who is not a member of your household or a carer at all times.”
