Allow socially distant activities

Allow activities that can comply with social distancing. Exercise on it’s own is boring for many of us, we need to open up and apply safe social distancing to those activities which can be allowed. I live alone and with current rules, I only have social interaction with my neighbours and that perhaps in passing 2-4 times a week. This lockdown is not sustainable so we need to start emphasizing safe social distancing and allow activities that can achieve a high degree of safety.

Why the contribution is important

It’s important to get back to normal as soon as possible. Some activities can easily comply with safe social distancing. It’s important to focus attention on what we need to do and provide that clear message, to start building hope and see the path ahead to normality. Many activities can be done that comply with social distancing eg fishing, golf, hiking spring to mind. Others like Tennis perhaps could be considered too.

    Agreed. We are also in a situation of trying to manage mental health issues which I know would be eased if able to see family/a few close friends - while still observing the distancing rules. I can’t see the difference with this, and queueing 2m apart for a supermarket/ pharmacy, only for people to get too close once inside, or passing people at 2m while on daily exercise, and even stopping to chat if you pass someone you know, again still observing distancing rules
