West Bridgford was quiet as the first day of the government’s new measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Boots is open of course and exercising a ‘five in – five out’ policy for customers needing to get essential medicines in line with the new rules.
The new rules are:
– shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible
– one form of exercise a day – for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household;
any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person; and
– travelling to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary and cannot be done from home.
