As the UK begin to start the journey to normality following
the road map set by the Government, latest restrictions now allow you to meet
outdoors with six people.
Although it is advised to minimise the number of journeys
you do, the stay at home rule has now ended therefore we know more people will
be back on the roads.
When driving, ensure you stick to the speed limits and wear
a seatbelt at all times. Do not drink and drive as just one drink can affect
your response times as a driver. Keep at least a two second gap between you and
the car in front in dry conditions. The gap should be at least double on wet
roads, and increase significantly in icy conditions.
If you are meeting up to six people outdoors stay safe
around water. Don’t jump into water as you never know what is under the
surface, and don’t go into water under the influence of alcohol. If you are
continuing to exercise outdoors, stick to pathways.
If you see someone in the water, don’t go in after them.
Call the emergency services and encourage the casualty to float.
If you are in the water, fight the urge to swim and try to
stay calm. Lie back and keep your airways clear, push your stomach up and extend
your limbs, moving your hands and feet to help you float.
