Latest news from Ramblers
It is clear that Coronavirus has not gone away, and we need to continue to help control the virus to save lives. Although there are some changes to government guidance, the lockdown is still in force across the UK and the advice continues to be to stay at home as much as possible. If you or anyone in your household has Coronavirus symptoms, you should continue to self-isolate. Click this link to read the Ramblers advice.
All Ramblers Group walks and social activities remain suspended until further notice. We will make sure these resume as soon as it is safe to do so. These activities include led Group walks, Walking for Health schemes, all·face-to-face·training·and meetings, path maintenance working groups,·path warden and path adoption schemes,·coach trips,·holidays and Group social events.
From Wednesday 13 May, the Government have announced that people in England:
· can exercise outdoors as often as you like alone, with members of your household.
· can also exercise with one other person from outside your household, while keeping two metres apart.
· may drive to outdoor open spaces, irrespective of distance, but should follow social distancing guidance whilst you are there.
In addition, the Ramblers urges all walkers in England to:
· Be sensitive to rural communities if considering travelling further from home to walk.·
· Avoid activities that may result in injury or require emergency services support, especially in remote locations.·
· Be aware that popular locations like National Parks or the coast may be very busy, making social distancing difficult.·
· Plan ahead, as some sites and facilities may be closed or have restrictions.
In many cases, the best option will be to stay local and explore the local area on foot.
If you’re are in a household with COVID-19 symptoms, you should self-isolate at home. Those aged 70 or older and those with pre-existing health conditions that put them at increased risk of COVID-19 are particularly advised to practice social distancing.
