Going out in Surrey

Are you confused about what this means?

Whilst we understand that residents may wish to get outside for some exercise during lockdown and visit our beautiful Surrey countryside, please be aware of what the rules are. Please follow the law and be sensible to help keep Surrey safe.

Lockdown rules and going outside

You should minimise time spent outside your home, but you can leave your home to exercise. This should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area. Local area means your village, town or the part of a city where you live.

You can exercise in a public outdoor place:

  • by yourself
  • with the people you live with
  • with your support bubble (if you are legally permitted to form one)
  • in a childcare bubble where providing childcare
  • or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household

This includes but is not limited to running, cycling, walking, and swimming. Please remember to maintain social distancing at all times (2 metres apart).

Public outdoor places include:

  • parks, beaches, countryside accessible to the public, forests
  • public gardens (whether or not you pay to enter them)
  • the grounds of a heritage site
  • playgrounds

Let's all play our part to keep Surrey safe.

For further details on the rules, visit the GOV.UK web page about leaving home and meeting others.
