The government has issued guidelines saying that we must stay inside. I understand this has now passed into law. Can anyone please point me to a copy of the legislation, and point out which sections are the relevant ones?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it simply asks for a link to a copy of the law and for someone to indicate which sections OP is curious about. This is not a question about the law.
