How far can I travel in lockdown?

Can I use someone else’s toilet?

While the Prime Minister has said that people shouldn’t be inside other people’s homes for purposes other than accessing the garden, it seems you can go to the toilet if you absolutely must.

At Thursday’s press conference, Professor Chris Whitty stressed the importance of keeping your hands clean when meeting up with others

He said: “If someone was to go into the loo because they had to do that, it’s absolutely critical that they wipe everything down, wash their hands all the way through.”

On the other hand, the Scottish first minister said: “Don’t go indoors. Being in someone else’s house should still be avoided unless of course you are providing support to someone who is vulnerable.

“We are not putting a legal limit on how far you can travel to meet another household, but please use your good judgment.

“If the distance is so far that you would have to use someone else’s bathroom, then perhaps you shouldn’t be doing it.”
