LIST OF 14 REASONS YOU CAN LEAVE HOME DURING SECOND CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN

Published at:

As Police gear up to enforce the second coronavirus lockdown, Island Echo has put together an easy-to-read list of all the reasons you are permitted to leave your home address over the next 4 weeks.

Island Echo has been keeping Islanders informed throughout the coronavirus pandemic and that continues as the second national lockdown comes into force from 00:01 tomorrow (Thursday). The rules remain in force until 2nd December.

You can only leave the house for the following reasons:

1. To shop for basic necessities like food and medical supplies, which includes shopping for pet food. You are also able to shop for supplies needed to keep your home maintained (where absolutely essential), or to obtain money.

2. To go to work and travel for work where it is not possible to work or provide services from home, including voluntary or charitable roles.

3. To take exercise or enjoy recreation outside either alone or with other members of your household or bubble, this includes at playgrounds. You may meet with 1 other person from another household on your own (young children/babies do not count as 1 person for these purposes).

4. To attend school or another educational establishment, or to take a child to school or childminders/nursery. University students should not return home.

5. To seek medical assistance or to attend medical appointments. This includes taking your pet to the vets.

6. To provide care or support to someone vulnerable, or provide emergency assistance.

7. To fulfill legal obligations, like attending court hearings or to take part in legal proceedings.

8. To access critical public services, which includes visiting a waste or recycling centre. You are able to access services provided by the Department of Work and Pensions such as the Job Centre, or services for victims of crime, drug recovery etc. Births, marriages and deaths can still be registered.

9. To attend a funeral with a maximum of 29 other people present – only close family and friends advised to attend. The scatterings of ashes is permitted with up to 15 people.

10. To co-parent. Parents who are separated can continue their existing parenting arrangements with children allowed to move between homes.

11. To go to a place of worship, but only if you are a minister of religion or worship leader or you are attending for single prayer. No services.

12. To move house and to visit an estate agent and/or show home.

13. To avoid injury or illness or to escape a risk of harm, including domestic abuse.

14. To attend an event commemorating Remembrance Sunday.

Police across the country have the power to fine citizens who are outside for reasons other than those listed in this article. If you fail to comply with their order to return home, you could be arrested. The Government’s instructions are not requests – it is law.

Will these same rules apply to the chavs being out buying non essential items like booze and drugs and meeting up with their drug dealers and causing trouble in the street? There can not be one law for them and another for ordinary people, and the do gooders can keep quiet if they are fined for being caught doing it, saying they can’t afford the money, they are are on more and better free handouts than some mug working and struggling to survive.

Hi Tom, thanks for your comments, you are correct I am running around as I work in St Mary’s hospital. In fact I was one of the many that people were applauding in spring. But thank you again. I’m sure you’ll be happy to note that I’m transferring off this island soon to work among more sensible people, joining my nephew…also a doctor. Good luck to you sir.

How the hell can going to an estate agent or viewing a house be essential. And how can going to a home thats occupied be safe when you can’t visit family. Absolutely disgraceful

I wouldn’t want anyone in my house looking and touching covid can stay on items for 72 hours and if in first lockdown it was not essential it surely isn’t it lockdown 2

Today,more than ever,I feel very sad and quite astonished at the lack of decency and honesty in people that pretend to represent us. In the end though, I choose to believe that truth will prevail, and the heroes will rise to the top. Maybe even the villains will be punished? We have the worst political class since Munich, but without any of their talent; and the worst Parliament in modern times. The 614 MPs who enabled this assault on freedom, democracy and prosperity will not be forgotten.

This is for the greater good. You have no idea what real oppression is. Absolutely no idea. Ask anyone who has grown up under soviet rule and they will tell you. These restrictions are to protect the public from a real and resent danger. You really are the islands No1 covidiot.

Spot on. Next they will be moaning about sky high unemployment. Also look at the ONS, excess deaths of treatable diseases. I agree there are Covidiots but there are equally as many hysterical covphobics. Wait until there is a deadly pandemic.

So, possibly hundreds of people attending a Remembrance Sunday event are going to be immune to the virus ? Also 29 people at a Funeral ( usually indoors ) but only 15 at the scattering of ashes ( outdoors ) ?? .. absolutely nonsensical .

Why non of this makes sense is easy to understand. We a do as we are told,and them giving the orders can do what they want. Simple. Are you willing to put up with that, that’s the question!?

maybe that’s what c h ina is trying to do , they do not like anyone else and imprison them and take their organs. Maybe the virus is just a world takeover plot, bat women could have made the virus then planted a bat in wu han market as a decoy and then sent batwomaen who had built up tolerance around the world to spread the virus, being as batwomen were used to initially spread could be why there is slightly less death rate with females.
