LONDON (AP) — The sound of a crisply struck golf ball, not to forget the occasional hack, could be heard in England for the first time in nearly two months as courses reopened Wednesday as part of a modest easing of coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
People in England are allowed to exercise more than once a day and with one person from outside their household, provided they remain two meters (around 6.5 feet) apart. Other sporting activities, such as tennis and swimming in lakes and fishing, are allowed too.
In addition, stores selling gardening supplies can reopen, while potential house buyers or renters can visit properties in person. And, most importantly in the context of getting the ailing British economy back on its feet, people who can’t work from home, such as those in construction and manufacturing, are being encouraged to return to their place of work if they can do so safely.
