Not sure what you can do?

 

Here is the current advice:

•You can do one form of exercise each day, for example a walk, run, or cycle – alone or with members of your household

• Keep at least 2m metres or more away from anyone outside of your household at all times. This will stop the virus spreading.

• If you are self-isolating with symptoms, or someone in your household has them, you shouldn’t leave home but that doesn’t mean you should stop moving. It’s really important to use movement and activity as a way of breaking up your routine, if you feel well enough. Cook, play active games, dance, go into the garden if you’ve got one.
