· For work, if you cannot work from home;
· For exercise and recreation outdoors, with your household, support bubble or on your own with one person from another household;
· For all medical reasons, appointments and to escape injury or harm;

Non-essential shops, leisure and entertainment venues will be closed. Click and collect services can continue and essential shops, including supermarkets, will remain open. Pubs, bars, restaurants must close, except for takeaway and delivery services.
