A “modest” easing of restrictions is happening from Wednesday September 29, including the lockdown radius widening to 15 kilometres from your home. And there are different ways you can make sure you stay within your permitted area.

One option is to plug each proposed destination into Google Maps to see how far away it is. But there are also online tools that let you map a circle around your home.

For example, the website KM From Home lets you plug in your address so you can see clearly which areas, amenities and exercise buddies are within any set radius. It also lets you drop a pin at a friend’s address, so you can see where your two circles overlap so you can take a walk together.

And for when you’re on the move, the RonaRadius app also lets you plug in your address, then add a destination to see if it’s close enough to visit.
