According to new government guidelines, people can do sports once a day. But does this include driving to a beauty salon or running to run or run your dog?

Traveling to and from work
To meet medical needs
North Yorkshire police have announced that they will use checkpoints to stop vehicles and ask drivers where they are going.
Deputy Police Chief Mike Walker said: “The new and significant restrictions announced by the Prime Minister on Monday night made clear what each of us must do to save our lives.
“The message is clear and the warning is sharp. Stay home, save your life.”

The statement stated: “The main trip does not include a second home, camp, caravan park or the like, regardless of isolation or vacation destinations.

What causes corona virus?
The outbreak began in Wuhan, China in December 2019, and it is believed that the virus, like other viruses, originated in animals.
How is it spread?
Because this is a new disease, experts are still not sure how it will spread. But such viruses spread in the form of coughs.

What are the symptoms?
The NHS states that the symptoms are: dry cough, fever, and shortness of breath – but these symptoms do not always mean you have the disease.

What security measures can be taken?
Wash your hands with soap and water. The NHS also recommends covering your mouth and nose with tissue or arms (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze. Put the used material in the trash immediately and avoid close contact with unhealthy people. Also, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth unless your hands are clean.
