In your own garden? Why not?

Sorry, I just totally disagree, and the experience of other countries further down the line than the UK shows that you're wrong about this.

Carrying on with activities like this makes some people doubt the severity of the situation and leads them to do dangerous things like visit a mate, or go to a pub lock-in, or have a birthday party for their kid. This spreads the virus and lessens the impact of all the people doing the right thing.

The messages cannot be mixed. It doesn't work. It needs to be black and white.

Like it or not, you are visible to other people in society and some will take a mistaken cue from you.

It's a team sport, and you should assume the worst of those around you and behave accordingly. Like I said before, this is what has been seen in countries further down the line than the UK.

Stay at home.

Are football teams up and down the cuntry still training together?

Carrying on with activities like going out for a walk? Are you listening to the live Prime Minister address right now? He has just encouraged people to go outside for walks, to aid physical and mental wellbeing. To be fair to him, he re-inforced the point about social distancing.

You stay at home 100% if you want.

Important stuff to do tomorrow and a visit to the local Asda is a must, a visit to the city center of Inverness is another. Should be an interesting experience.


Take photos. I’m keen to know how many corpses are lining the streets.

As long as you social distance from your gardner, aye.

Maybe he’s got an allotment.

The one time I was in a country I couldn't speak the language of and wandering unwittingly into a cordoned off area because of some event in town, having an AK74 pointed at me told me everything I needed to know.

It’s Inverness, probably the usual number.

😎 good stuff.

I live in the burbs, right on the edge of Kirkcaldy. Can I go the odd walk for exercise purposes?

Fucking moronic neighbours here next to me still not getting the severity. Guy across the road has had about 10 visitors all laughing and joking about their extended holiday. Old boy visiting a friend 2 doors down " am no worried, if you're going to get it you'll get it" even the next door neighbour is off out with her sister to see her mum. It's fucking ridiculous. Clearly these people have never seen a loved one on a ventilator watching the oxygen go up to 100 unable to do anything about it.

If there are people who think ‘if it’s OK to go out for a walk, then it’s OK to go to the boozer’, then sorry, I’m not responsible for the actions of such bellends. I have read a few posts here today basically saying we should simply stay indoors, completely, unless in an absolute emergency - medicines, shopping, new calculator batteries for Granny Danger.

I strongly disagree with that. I raised the point a day or so ago about outdoor places like the Kelpies or Falkirk Wheel possibly attracting large(ish) numbers of people. Well-meaning people, but still a likely gathering ‘hot spot’. I intend to avoid such places, but I will simply keep going out for a quiet stroll in relatively quiet areas, if the weather plays ball. I will observe social distancing while out strolling around quietly.

I'm just below the highest risk group and looking after someone the same. Thankfully we live near a river, canal and park where it's easy not to get close to people, will have to take a thermos or hipflask instead of stopping at a cafe or pub, but paranoia might take over as the % of potential carriers increase. Well stocked up so long as alcohol deliveries continue online.

No idea.

We're all making our own decisions, but your decisions affect us all.

Being outside should simply be discouraged. Look around the world at what is happening elsewhere. The virus in the UK is the same virus.

By being outside, you encourage others to be outside. I'd love to convince you, but I don't think I can.

I just hope you reconsider.

That's not a problem if allotment gardeners practice social distancing.

I'm still going out for walks. I live near Inverleith Park. Its very easy to stay metres away from another soul.
