Where did you go and how did it feel? Or have you been going out all along?

Many people over the age of 70 and others considered to be vulnerable will be emerging from their “cocoons” today as the recommendation that they stay at home at all times is adjusted to allow for outings with appropriate social distancing.

If you are over-70, The Irish Times would like to hear from you. Where did you go on your first journey out, and how did it feel? Why did you choose that particular destination? How have you managed with the cocooning period? Are you relieved it is over? Perhaps you have been disregarding the recommendations before today, or all along? Are you concerned about the virus, and what measures are you taking while out and about to minimise risk?
