COVID-19: Older people to be allowed time to exercise outdoors as Government eases restrictions – report
Older people are expected to be allowed time to exercise outdoors when the Government announces the first measures to ease Covid-19 restrictions on May 5.
Over-70s will still be asked to ‘cocoon’, but they will no longer be forced to stay in their homes 24 hours a day, according to a report in today’s Irish Independent.
It says the expected ban on non-essential travel will also be relaxed to allow people to travel more than 2km from their homes, although a new limit is likely to be set.
Plans are also being drafted to allow hardware stores and garden centres to re-open as long as social distancing measures are adhered to.
