National Police Chiefs’ Council clarification what you can and cannot do outside

https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-new-police-guidelines-on-reasonable-excuses-for-leaving-home-including-cooling-off-after-a-row-11974322 National Police Chief’s Council clarification what you can and cannot do outside

Government announces criteria it will use for loosening Lockdown

1. Ensure NHS can provide enough critical care treatment 

2. A ‘sustained and consistent fall’ in daily death rate 

3. Reliable data showing rate of infection is decreasing to manageable levels 

4. Testing capacity and PPE supply are ready to meet future demand 

5. There is no risk of second peak to overwhelm the NHS
