You must not leave home except where necessary, for example to buy basic necessities and daily exercise, or you have a ‘reasonable excuse’.

The police can issue you with a fine (Fixed Penalty Notice) if you leave home without a ‘reasonable excuse’.

Visit GOV.UK for a list of what is included as a 'reasonable excuse' to leave your home.
