to travel to or from work if you are providing an essential service The full list of essential services is available here.
to shop for food
to collect medical prescriptions and medical supplies and attend medical appointments
to carry out vital services like caring (including family carers)
for brief individual exercise - within 2 kilometres of your house. (You can bring children but must keep 2 metres away from others for social distancing)
I'm doing on call for Medical Device company; & they've been told they're 'Essential', & speaking to my Boss this week; I've been told that if I need to go in (& I've been WFH for weeks), I just need to contact him, & verify the need.
Its just common sense. If the Cops stop someone (unlikely), they'll just ask for a credible explanation for why they're on the road; & then use their common sense.
