Safe walking - Latest Government guidance since 15th June
You can exercise outdoors as often as you like alone, or with members of your household.
You can now also exercise with up to 6 other people from your household or support bubble or in groups of up to 6 people from another household while keeping two metres apart.
In many cases, the best option will be to stay local and explore the local area on foot. If you are clinically vulnerable (i.e. over 70 or with a listed underlying health condition) you are advised to take particular care to minimise contact with others outside your household.
Local champions back campaign to keep Greater Manchester moving
Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth champions including Stacey Copeland and Diane Modahl are among local stars joining a Greater Manchester wide campaign to #KeepGMMoving and help inspire residents across the city-region to keep moving despite restrictions, which prevents people from leaving their homes to help stop the spread of coronavirus other than for very limited purposes. These extend to multiple forms of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle. From 15th June you can leave your home to exercise and spend time outdoors for recreation, sports or other activities:
with your household or support bubble
in groups of up to 6 people from another household or support bubble
