Government says you can’t see your partner during Covid-19 lockdown
The Government has ordered Brits to not visit their boyfriend or girlfriend if they do not live together during the coronavirus lockdown.
In an astonishing move, a No10 spokesman said people must follow four “clear” rules if they are to leave their homes.
Those are the following rules :
- Caring for a vulnerable person, or attending a medical appointment
- Travelling to or from work if you cannot do so from home
- Exercising once a day – such as running, walking or cycling, alone or with the people you live with
- Shopping for food – as infrequently as possible
Guidance from the Government said : “You should be ensuring you are two metres apart from anyone outside of your household.”
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman was asked if the rules applied to partners – which was then clarified.
He said today: “I think the guidance was clear yesterday.
“What it said was you should stay at home and set out four very specific circumstances where you may be permitted to go outdoors.
“Those rules should be applied to all scenarios.”
But, there are two exceptions to the rules.
Key workers are allowed to take their children to school and kids under 18 can move between both parents’ homes if they are separated.
No10 did promise it would give more clarity within hours, hinting that the advice may be changed later.
The rules that were introduced to “save lives”, according to Downing Street.
Boris’s spokesman added: “When you are out of the house you should only do so with members of your own household if it’s for work reasons.”
When asked whether boyfriends and girlfriends could still meet in public along, as gatherings of “more than two” people are banned, No10 said it would look into the issue.
