Here’s Everything You Can And Cannot Do Under The UK’s New Lockdown Rules

The UK’s lockdown rules have changed once again, but what does it all mean?

The world as we currently know it has become quite a confusing place, with a whole lot of lockdown rules in place for us to follow. And while they’ve been enforced to keep us all safe from the coronavirus outbreak, sometimes, they can seem difficult to digest. Here are all of the government’s latest guidelines to follow, laid out as simply as possible.

How much can I exercise?

Answer: Unlimited.

Since May 13, people in the UK have been able to take part in unlimited amounts of daily exercise outside. Previously, Brits were only allowed to leave the house for limited reasons, including collecting essentials from a local shop or taking up one form of exercise outdoors per day. We’re being encouraged to take advantage of the great outdoors, with restrictions lifted on exercise, driving to other destinations such as walking spots, sunbathing in a local park and playing outdoor sports with members of your household – but social distancing and frequent hand washing is still highly advisable, and the varying rules between regions of the UK mean you should stay in England for now, as Scotland and Wales have taken different approaches.

Do I still need to stay at home?

Answer: Yes.

While the government has scrapped its ‘Stay Home’ slogan, it is still necessary to stay at home as much as possible. The general public is only permitted to leave their houses for the following reasons:

  • for work, where you cannot work from home
  • going to shops that are permitted to be open – to get things like food and medicine, and to collect goods ordered online or on the phone
  • to exercise or spend time outdoors for recreation (e.g. sunbathing and resting) – from June 1, this will include seeing friends and family in outdoor spaces, such as parks and private gardens
  • any medical need, to donate blood, avoid injury or illness, escape risk of harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person

The government’s official guidelines read: “You must continue to stay home except for a limited set of reasons but – in line with scientific advice – can take part in more outdoor activities from Wednesday 13 May.”

Can I see my friends and family?

Answer: Yes

After the first lockdown change on May 13, Boris Johnson has now announced that from Monday, June 1, Brits can now see up to five other people in an outdoor space, including those from different households. This means you may visit your family and catch up with them in the garden, or meet with your friends at the park – a huge step towards getting Britain social again. Social distancing rules, of course, need to be followed – so if you’re hanging out in a friend’s garden, you can only pass through the house to get there, without lingering indoors. You’re also advised against seeing too many households “in quick succession”. However, after almost three months away from loved ones, it’s a welcome update to the regulations. Until June 1, Brits must stick with the former regulations where you may only meet with one other person in a public outdoor space, keeping a 2-metre distance from one another.

Do I need to go to work?

Answer: If you cannot work from home, yes. If you can work from home, no.

The government has stated that those who are unable to work from home, particularly those in manufacturing and construction, should return to work. While these people are being encouraged to return to the workplace, it’s been advised to continue avoiding public transport unless absolutely necessary, and wear a mask when using public transport. Those who can work from home, for example, office workers, should continue to do so.

Do I still need to stay 2m away from others?

Answer: Yes.

The 2-metre social distancing rule still applies, and is likely to apply for a number of upcoming phases in the government’s exit lockdown plan. We are still be required to distance ourselves when using shops, and we’ll also need to ensure we’re keeping two metres away from anyone outside of our households. Countries such as New Zealand are now beginning to re-open restaurants, where social distancing has been put in place in between all tables – which, if effective, could be beneficial for the UK to implement too once we reach that stage of the lockdown rules.

Can I travel?

Answer: If you can drive, yes (in some cases). If you can’t, no (unless for essential journeys).

There is still no update on when Brits will be able to travel abroad, however, the government has announced that people coming into the country from June 8 will need to quarantine for a 14-day period, with Boris Johnson saying: “To prevent reinfection from abroad, I am serving notice that it will soon be the time – with transmission significantly lower – to impose quarantine on people coming into this country by air.” It is currently unclear how long the quarantine rules will be in place for, and this rule may not apply to every nation; for instance, the UK and Portugal are in talks for an “air bridge” between the two nations that would negate the need for tourists from both countries to quarantine upon arrival.

Under the current lockdown rules, we’re permitted to drive to work and to “other destinations”, which have seen people making trips to the beach and beauty spots around the country. Official guidelines state: “From Wednesday 13 May, you may drive to outdoor publicly accessible open spaces irrespective of distance, but should follow social distancing guidance whilst you are there. You should plan ahead to ensure that, where you are visiting places like National Parks, you have checked that they are open and appropriately prepared for visitors. You should not go to ticketed outdoor leisure venues, where there is a higher risk of close contact and touching surfaces.”

In London, Tube and bus services have been ramped up to pre-pandemic levels to help efforts to maintain social distancing whilst travelling. We’re being advised to avoid public transport where possible, but if you need to make the journey, wearing a face mask and washing your hands afterwards is highly advisable. Alternative means of travel, predominantly walking and cycling, are being encouraged by Mayor Sadiq Khan to get Londoners moving again safely.

When will pubs, restaurants and salons re-open?

Answer: Not yet.

Speaking to Sky News, Dominic Raab confirmed that Brits won’t be able to enjoy a cold pint or get a haircut until July 4 at the very earliest. The re-opening of the hospitality industry, as well as the beauty industry, will be reviewed on a conditional basis in a later phase of the government’s plan, meaning if cases rise again, we could see pubs, restaurants, hotels and salons re-open much later than July. Recently, Environment Minister George Eustice said pubs with beer gardens would be the first to reopen.

Only food retailers and food markets, hardware stores, garden centres, and certain other retailers are currently open, with social distancing rules in place. Outdoor markets and car showrooms are permitted to reopen from June 1, but non-essential stores will get to re-open their doors again from June 15, but some, like IKEA, are returning earlier.

Can I be fined for breaking the rules?

Answer: Yes.

Fines have been in place since the beginning of lockdown to help police enforce the rules, however, it’s worth noting that on Wednesday, May 13, fines increased to a maximum of £3,200. Starting at £100, fines will double for each repeat offence.
