Are you asking if you are allowed?

Then yes whilst following the guidelines.

Time to crack on now I reckon.

The guy that many see as running the country, Dominic Cummings, drove hundreds of miles (while symptomatic), to visit elderly family, at the height of the lockdown.

Apparently as long as you are "sensible" about it, all of the rules and guidelines were always open to interpretation and at no point did you have to pay any attention to any of it.

I think that's been the case for many - in all sectors of work


Anyway - drill down to the guidelines and you can share a vehicle - just have a window open - works for the local dustmen

Yup, visit elderly relatives too, especially if you feel unwell.

Two men in one van never get through as much work (domestic) as one man in one van.

I've also found in the past that if you mix the wrong two guys together it become a them v you scenario

Thats my experience anyway.

I donít think you are supposed to be working 2 in a van yet lol,father and son yes or same household but thatís about it although itís now tempting the guidelines donít say you can do it.
2 meters apart although they were talking the other day about reducing it sometime soon to 1 meter,went to a garden centre yesterday the guy in the plant section came up beside us and reached down to show us what we were looking for lol,he was about 18Ē away from us as time goes on it will diminish in peopleís minds that they have to keep away from each other.
I thinks itís still sensible to keep your wits about you for the next few months.

I saw that about two weeks ago, but Iím sure at the start that wasnít there. Or maybe I was just staying alert before I needed to and thought it didnít make sense as you canít socially distance.
