Breaking News ! Home Secretary Priti Patel said people should exercise alone, despite the coronavirus rules permitting activity with a friend. The guidance makes clear that in England someone is allowed to exercise outdoors with one other person from a different household. Asked whether the rules were clear, Ms Patel told ITV’s This Morning: “The clarity is exercising on your own and not socialising.” Read More Related Articles Pub caught hosting lockdown lock-ins with punters drinking, smoking and even singing karaoke...this is the moment police raided it Read More Related Articles Previous Covid-19 infection 'provides some immunity for at least five months' She said “cycling is fine, because you are on your own, you should not be cycling with other cyclists”. She added: “The point to make about any exercise – yes, it should be local, people exercise differently. “But exercise on your own and don’t use it for a social meeting.” The rules allow daily exercise with one other person outdoors (Image: PA) Ms Patel continued: “Running, exactly in the same way because you are on your own, walking on your own.

. It is the second time this week that Ms Patel appears to have got the rules wrong. At a Downing Street press conference, she said that “outdoor recreation” is permitted in a “restricted and limited way” – despite it being prohibited during the lockdown. Aides said she misspoke and meant to say exercise rather than recreation. Home Secretary Priti Patel On This Morning she said runners were not required to wear a mask after being shown footage of a Covid marshal stopping a jogger for breathing heavily. “We are clear in the rules that you can exercise on a daily basis but not socialise,” she said. “You can’t run and wear a mask, that’s not practical and that’s not sensible.” The Home Secretary again defended Boris Johnson’s bike ride seven miles away from Downing Street in east London’s Olympic Park. “If you are in a London borough, London boroughs are big places in terms of cycling and walking,” she said. But when it was pointed out Mr Johnson went out of Westminster, Ms Patel said: “London is a big geography in terms of cycling – five miles, 10 miles – many people cycle big distances and that’s normal to them."
