People still need shopping, (for them and errands) medicines or pay point.

Currently in Greece you need to text the police with your name and where you are going. Only food shops and pharmacies are allowed.
If stopped when out you need to have ID and if you haven't registered to go out then you are fined 1000 Euros.
One of my bosses said we won't be closing (ASDA), so no need to worry about that, if you need food.
One of the lads said will we be getting extra pay or something for all this harder work and working at risk of being infected, the boss laughed and said wear gloves!

If it goes into full lockdown you will still be able to get food and go to a pharmacy but you will need to prove where you are going

All of those things will be allowed, but I'm guessing that you might be questioned by the police about where you are going.

I am going to get my daily walk done very early in the morning to avoid other people. The highland cattle in our local country park will wonder where I am if I stop going to see them.

Boots allowing 8 people at one time, some stores have marked spacing but difficult with supermarkets (with no eating out more food will be needed) and lack of online availability.
Alex Salmond knows lockdown inside out.

In France, before you leave the house, you need to print (or write) out a form then date & sign it. You need to provide a details of where you are going & why. If you’re stopped without one or your reason for being outside isn’t essential you are liable to a fine. Other than obvious essential activities such food shopping & medical care you are allowed to exercise (alone) or walk pets.

Can’t seeing us going that far here but we should know more later tonight.

The way Greece is working at the moment is unreal, they have got their measures spot on and they will manage this situation really well if they keep this up.

Maybe we could make another Zombie film or 'A Quiet Town' rather than A Quiet Place

I don't know why he bothers, he is always late with his leadership. I know the actions already from the other countries as they are a few days to two weeks ahead.
Hope this time Boris Johnson is very strict and implement really strict rules. In other European countries, where severe social distancing rules are already in place for 2 weeks the numbers of infected people are coming down ( Belgium, Germany ) and as a result they have a much lower mortality rate than the UK.

I asked that, people sit at home on 80% wage, yet I’ve got to work everyday for no extra...
People a blaming the government for not putting lockdown in place, if people took responsibility for there own actions they wouldn’t need to... but like everything now a days people are idiots...
Boris Johnson has announced a complete lockdown of the UK, banning people from leaving their homes or meeting in groups of more than two people as the Government scrambles to enforce social distancing measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

In a public address to the nation this evening, the Prime Minister said the public will not be allowed to leave their homes except for a few specific reasons, and could be fined £30 for meeting outside in groups of more than two people.

All non-essential shops will close, as will outdoor gyms, kiosks and places of worship, except for funerals.

The unprecedented measures were prompted by fears in Downing Street that its coronavirus suppression measures have been ignored by the public, and modelling that suggests at least three quarters of people must follow them for the NHS to be kept afloat.

Under the new lockdown, members of the public must not leave their house except to :

Shop for essentials, as infrequently as possible
Exercise outdoors once per day, alone or with household members
Receive medical treatment or provide care
Travel to and from work if impossible to work from home
SHOPS ALLOWED TO STAY OPEN
ONLY a small group of retailers will be allowed to stay open, they include:

  • Supermarkets
  • Pharmacies
  • Newsagents
  • Pet shops
  • Hardware stores
  • Banks
  • Post Offices
Argos Stores UpdateFollowing the Prime Minister’s announcement, standalone Argos stores are now closed. The Argos website is open as usual and still offering fast delivery, so while shops are shut customers can still buy Argos products online quickly and easily.

Argos stores in Sainsbury’s supermarkets are also still open. Check here to find your nearest store.

We would strongly encourage you to order your items online for home delivery, or to collect whilst doing your essential food shopping at Sainsbury’s.

We will share more details about how we will continue to serve you as soon as possible. For now, thank you for your support and understanding.

Although I do agree with these sentiments, to be fair to everyone, there has been so many mixed messages. It was only 9 days ago that we were being advised that the government were implementing the herd immunity strategy. Hopefully now that clear direct instructions have been put in place, rather than 'guidelines', the nation will comply.
