Travelling around the country during COVID-19
So how do the new local COVID alert levels factor in your half-term travel plans?
Devon is at the ‘medium’ tier alert level. So is the rest of the South West.
Movement around the region is pretty straight forward, but remember, a holiday away from home, is not a holiday away from coronavirus.
Everyone still needs to follow the guidance on social distancing, hand washing regularly and wearing of face coverings, wherever you are in the country.
And please don’t travel at all if you have symptoms, however mild – a high temperature, new and continuous cough, or loss or change to your sense of taste and smell – or if you’ve been advised to self-isolate.
The general principle is that you must follow the rules of the tier you normally live in, regardless of where you are in the country. That’s the general principle, but there may be local restrictions on top of that which you need to know about.
We’ve written about it on our website, including a link to a postcode checker that tells you what restrictions are in place, by postcode area
