The Government advice makes it clear that people should stay home and avoid all but essential travel. Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People must remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 give the police the appropriate powers to ensure that the public comply with these necessary measures, including through issuing penalties.
