Posted: Mon, 11 May 2020 17:07
On 10 May, the government confirmed changes to what's allowed in relation to sport and physical activity as part of the next phase of its response to the Covid-19 outbreak. It's been confirmed that from Wednesday 13 May:
- People can go outside more than once a day for exercise if they're following social distancing guidelines, are alone, with members of their household, or with one person from outside their household. People must still only exercise in groups of no more than two people, unless exercising with their household.
- Any facilities associated with outdoor sports and physical activities can reopen from Wednesday 13 May 2020, if those responsible for them feel ready to do so and if they can do so safely, and in line with this and related public health guidance.
- Outdoor gyms, playgrounds, or outdoor swimming pools will remain closed.
