COVID-19: Practical considerations and advice for walkers

Let’s keep the walking community healthy and safe. Having assessed all the relevant potential risks within the outdoor walking environment, we have produced a comprehensive set of practical tips to help walkers limit the spread of COVID-19.


Recreational walking in the great outdoors is a relatively low-risk activity when it comes to COVID-19. The fresh air and the well-separated population, even at busy walking locations, helps to minimise the virus’s ability to spread outdoors.

However, we must not be complacent. Practical considerations and advice for walkers can be found on our website by following the links below.

We will continue to monitor the latest advice, guidance and instructions issued by official government sources throughout this crisis. The practical considerations and advice detailed on our website are aimed specifically at recreational walkers. These are supplemental to the general advice, guidance and instructions issued by official government sources and will be updated accordingly as the crisis develops.
