Maybe location dependent too? Plenty of people near here have to drive twenty miles or more to buy food, so that's definitely local for Galloway ... but it's enough to go from Edinburgh across the Queensferry Crossing to Dalgety Bay, and that doesn't sound very local.As I say a grey area but I regard 20 miles as close to home. It is certainly not a long way from home.
Who are JWD? Google suggests Architectural aluminium?JWD have put out their understanding of the blessed Nicola's message - to be confirmed after the definitive version on 28th May. It appears to be very similar to the English version of no overnighting and maintain social distancing at all times with added hand sanitiser. No office access and a one-out/one-in process for the disabled toilet with the others closed.
However, it all depends on the numbers moving in the right direction and given the idiotic behaviour on the local beach yesterday there is no guarantee.
(adv) German slang expression, orginating from Berlin, abbreviation for "janz weit draussen" ("very far off"), pronounced "yod way day". A mockery term to denote provincial regions and ideas, can be used to qualify a place, something or someone as being out of the question, unacceptable, off the mark or simply f*cked up.

As somebody who has worked in control engineering this has been apparent to me since the start. I imagine any first year undergraduate of feedback theory and control loops knows that the further the measurement point (deaths*) is away from the control point (passing on/getting the infection) the greater is the probability of the system going into instability and oscillating.Presumably it takes about a month for possible spikes in infections and deaths to become apparent, which is the reason for the three-weekly decisions about relaxations.
There's a fleet of them at Hayling Island sailing club in Chi Harbour. Dependent totally on body weight to keep upright as far as I can see, but they dont seem to fall over any more often than other modern racing dinghies. I never sailed one, (I dont like boats that can tip you in!), but they look no more difficult to get going properly than a sailboard as far as I can see.Where can I get a go in a one of those and are they as difficult to sail as they look!
Median time from infection to symptoms is about 5 days, maximum in practice is 14, so the thinking seems to be that after three weeks they'll have a full week's worth of extra cases to assess.Presumably it takes about a month for possible spikes in infections and deaths to become apparent, which is the reason for the three-weekly decisions about relaxations.
Yes, that is why you have to ease lockdown slowly. Implement phase 1 then wait a month so see if there are a rise in new cases or deaths. Only then can you move on to stage 2.As somebody who has worked in control engineering this has been apparent to me since the start.

So if I am just going for a walk, it is possible to do that close to home, so I will.In addition, people will be able to travel - preferably by walking or cycling - for recreation, although they will be asked to remain "where possible" within or close to their own local area.
Indeed. I would imagine availability of Healthcare Staff, Ward & Critical Care Beds and capacity at Crematoria will be important considerations when deciding whether to futher ease restrictions and when.Yes, that is why you have to ease lockdown slowly.

my nearest ‘supermarket’ is 16 miles. Tesco is 25. Applying our rural reality to this I would not consider it in any way out of order to drive that distance to your boat.I am allowed to drive 25 miles into Inverness to go to B&Q. On the way back the boat is only a 5 mile detour. Sorted.
A very good interpretation. to get to your boat is were your boat is , just like if I wanted to hike, and lived in Glasgow centre , I could drive to the Trossachs and go hiking, but if i I Just wanted a good walk then this is possible locally, therefore stopping to many unnecessary journeys.Re the travel thing. This is the BBC's interpretation of it
So if I am just going for a walk, it is possible to do that close to home, so I will.
If I am going sailing, I can't do that at home because there is no water so travel is unavoidable but we are allowed to travel where it is not possible to remain local, so that too is okay.
Well if plod stopped me and I said I am going to B&Q and he said "that's too far" then I would argue what is the point in allowing them to open if the customers are prohibited from travelling there?Also whether folk are acting responsibly and staying within 5 miles of their home. If you've decided to live in the middle of nowhere and don't have a B&Q nearby can you drive 25miles to one?
