I brought the last tub of 'Marvel Skimmed Milk Powder' in the supermarket.

I didn't know you could still get it! It'll do in an emergency I suppose...

We have to fill one of these in if we step outside the house, giving the reason for our journey.
The local shops have been ordered to only let a few people in at a time, and we wait , 2 metres apart , in a queue outside. We all had a right telling off last night from President Macron but people are taking it more seriously today.

So do you have to carry that and show it if stopped, Mike?

Nick seems to be very knowledgeable about a lot of things :)

Preparing for an emergency and/or isolation was a fundamental part of my childhood. Where we lived made it essential.

Then I spent a significant part of my working life in a team of people who were doing that on behalf of a few hundred thousand people.

You pick up a lot of information and ideas along the way.  :)

The most important thing is not to panic. Look out for instructions/guidance, then follow it as best you can.

Yes, and the gendarmes do stop you and check.

What if you don't have a printer or have run out of ink? Are they distributing blank forms to people who might need one?

You can copy it it (ie write it out manually) on blank paper. One of my sons works in the food industry, so he'll be needing it every day.

Exactly that. We've filled the top part in with ink but the tick boxes and date with pencil so that we should get away with just one form.
