Hmmm, not sure of that. I thought the rule is not to leave home. I imagine that the back yard is part of 'home'. In my 'real' backyard I am a long way from the neighbours, especially as they retreat indoors once the sun sets, but I suppose if you had one of those fenced picnic blankets that pass for backyards in new estates you might be too near to the neighbours when outdoors.

Stage 4 is guaranteed to work. If we all stay home and don’t leave the house to get tested, the numbers are sure to come down

This damn virus has cut my social interaction by at least 3%.
I wish all the best for members in the thick of it ... stay safe.

At this stage it is the only viable option we have. It's a difficult juggling act between locking everything and trying to avoid population frustration. We're lucky we have a astro hobby.
