Staying at home advice - long walks further from home encounter less people

During my lock down daily walks I have noted the number of people I pass. This number is significantly lower the further I walk from my home location. If I stay local, I have to pass many more people than I do when I walk further afield. Of course, it takes longer to do the latter. So the implication is clear, the regulation limiting the time one is out walking obliges adherence to a tight locality, resulting in the opposite to the desired effect (more people are encountered). I live in a village in the country so access to space is relatively easy. But the same could apply in towns and cities in respect of access to parks and open spaces.

Why the contribution is important

To encourage compliance with COVID restrictions.
