Me and my bursd are doing it now and I had to go to the shops yesterday.  Just made it quick and went to the self service.   No idea if what I done was stupid or not.

Looking at other nations guidance, because the UK is a joke, it's more about social distancing to avoid it spreading or you catching it. If you fancy a walk in the park then go for it. Just don't head down to your local and get smashed and close with your entire wee town.

People need to eat. Even looking at Italy, food shops are still open so assuming that people still use them. Advice I've seen is do it, and wash your hands as soon as you get home.

If/when it comes to us (unless full lock-down) we'll all be hopping into the car and going for walks in the hills/beach etc. Just need to keep your distance from people, sensibly.

We had a bit of an argument last night because I’m bored out my skull already and suggested going for a drive in the car but she has a different idea to me about what the self isolation means.

Aye you can go for a drive man. It's about containment of the virus not the people. It's not The Happening and the plants are going to kill us. Just avoid large groups of people on close proximity or in doors. To avoid yourself getting it or spreading to others if you're already contagious. Who is at risk of you jump in the car for a drive?

No one but she is down the whole “taking this v seriously staying inside unless it’s vital to go out”.

She wasn’t bothered about me going to the shops as we needed stuff to make dinners but she wouldn’t go for a drive as it isn’t necessary for example. I can see thinking but I’m on the same page as you.

Good way of getting out and about without being in close proximity of folk unless you have a bump or flat, i’ve put some latex gloves in the car for filling the tank at petrol stations,

We took a drive to anstruther yesterday due to boredom and the alternative being sit in and watch films which we will be doing plenty of in the coming weeks.

I see Edinburgh reddit are setting up something where healthy folk can walk dogs for people.

I had thought about whether you would just put a scarf on and walk the street without stopping to speak to anyone.

Nice walk today. Was weirdly quiet on pavements, but tons of cars, and a few cyclists. Motorway was busy. (M77 runs through the city nearby and theres a good walk up a path next to it)

6 mile walk round Central Park with the wee man. Wet under foot so he got filthy but was straight in the bath and now he’s passed out!! I have to get out every day with him or I’d go crazy in the apt.

Aye man, few years now. Park was dead today, nowhere near as many tourists as your average Thursday.
