The review of current lockdown measures

Tightening current restrictions by removing the privilege of going outdoors for 1 form of exercise a day or changing the radius of which people can exercise.

Why the contribution is important

I feel that this needs to be considered and implemented as there are now far too many people going outside for reasons out with the current ones i.e food, medicine etc. I have seen on my journeys to work that the roads are filled and there are people crowded in places who simply don’t seem to be doing any form of exercising. I feel that following in the footsteps of Wales who also changed their rules on exercising, will drastically help combat the increasing rate of infection and number of cases in Scotland and allow us to transition to our new normal sooner.

    What a sad sad state of affairs when there are people willing to trade their freedom for security. To quote Benjamin Franklin- Those that trade freedom for security will get neither. This idea is terrible and a huge step backwards !

    Absolutely NOT necessary and if anything the lock down should be loosened

    Please amend to allow people in more remote areas to travel in their cars to isolated spots for safe exercise. Also in less densely populated areas the amount of time could be upped to 2 hours. At the moment some people completely flout the rules anyway and are out for 3 or 4 hours a day where others are respecting the Government's guidelines. this is particularly difficult in smaller villages where children all go to school together and see/hear of their classmates going out on picnics and they are only allowed out for their hour.

    i don't see why people are voting this down. Look at Italy, our death rate has exceeded them (a country with a large population of elderly) and here we are.... people still wanting to go outside. I completely agree with this...if this was implemented early a lot of people could have been saved.

    Absolutely disagree. I'm already suffering from lack of outdoor exercise due to current restrictions. I agree many places are crowded. I've seen faces locally I've never seen before. And many people can't manage an hour. But for those of who can do an hour or more, please let us keep that.
