Living in England but working in Scotland, what is 'essential purposes'
5

Just that really, DP works mon-fri in Scotland, stays in a flat there provided by work and travels home each Friday. What exactly is classed as 'essential purposes' as that's the only reason you can travel to and from. Both panicking a bit, we struggled hugely last time like many others did as he got next to nothing money wise. I do work myself and have a secure job within the nhs but my pay compared to his is minuscule and does not cover the outgoings.

Its his job so of course its essential travel (unless he could do it from home)

That's what I said to him, it's not like he's going for a day out, but there isn't any clarification on what is classed as essential. Hopefully that's right though.

Also he works within construction so definitely not able to work from home.

Yes work is an essential purpose. Construction sites are open in Scotland and have to follow HPS guidelines.

Johnson outlines the measures that he says will last until the start of December.

And he lists some of the exceptions for which people can leave their homes, including:

  • for education
  • for work, if you cannot work from home
  • for exercise and recreation outdoors
  • for medical reasons
  • to shop for food and essentials
  • to care for others
