email received from Sainsbury's Chief Executive Simon Roberts:
Quote
I have spent a lot of time in our stores over the past few days and I need to ask for your help with two key issues to keep you and all my colleagues safe.
When shopping in our stores, you must wear a mask or visor unless you have a medical exemption. And you should also shop on your own. Thank you for your support.
Security guards will support our colleagues at the front of store and will challenge customers who are not wearing masks or who are shopping in groups. I know youíll understand and support what we are trying to do.
We have also significantly reduced the number of customers allowed in our stores at any one time to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times.
Together, these steps will go a long way to keep everyone safe, whether you are shopping or working with us.
Please wear a mask or visor and please shop alone in our stores. Thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe.

Does it count if you cycle there but have a Range Rover ahead of you and another behind you?

I think you can go overboard on rules.
The main issue is to avoid human contact. If everybody remembered that and strove towards it rather than looked for ways to get round the rules there would be less transmission.
The more rules there are the more they are open to interpretation and misinterpretation by both public and police.
Education is more important than enforcement and punishment.

I find this site useful to keep abreast of where it is:

Unfortunately it's rife round me so I stay in.
Let's be careful out there!

With regards to Boris on his bike, what a load of twaddle over nothing. "Local" (no actual definition is given), is different for walkers and cyclists. 7 miles is local for a cyclist but getting in a car to drive there then walking is not.

Depends if he cycled to the Olympic Park or was driven there.

Downing Street is still refusing to confirm or deny that he drove or was driven there, as well as his security detail.

We're all grown ups, we should be able to give people a set of simple rules and trust their judgement. If someone is caught breaking the rules, they should be warned, and fined for a repeat offence, or refusal to comply.

However, those writing and enforcing these rules must be whiter than white, and somebody in Johnson's position should set an example, otherwise people will not take any of it seriously.

In Wales the rule is clear, you can exercise as often as you like as long as the exercise starts and finishes at home, so no driving somewhere to exercise.

What is the rule in England now, is it just 'stay local' to exercise ?

Depends if you are a Government minister or not.

Met Police saying they would like to get tougher but the rules are confusing, they can't understand them.

Pritti Patel has a briefing later, wonder if she is to give more clear guidance.

Learned today that my niece has got it.

She's a ward sister at a hospital dealing with significant numbers of covid patients.

Typical.
Announce rules. Tick.
Change them as you go along. Tick
Blame the public for not adhering to them . Tick
Clarify them and change them again. Tick
Blame the public for not  obeying them. Tick
Ignore any breaches by Government members as "an honest misunderstanding". Tick

I would think it highly unlikely that Downing Street will give any details on how Boris gets from here to there, whether it be by bike or Special Branch car.

Hope she recovers without any ongoing problems
