The Lake District's Mountain Rescue Teams are urging the public to stay off the fells so no added strain is put on the NHS.
Guidance released to the police last week suggests that it is ok to drive somewhere to exercise as long as the walk is longer than the journey.
Cumbria Police has stated once again that Cumbria is closed to visitors and the mountain rescue teams support that.
Richard Warren, Chair of Lake District Search and Mountain Rescue Association, says locals shouldn't see the new guidance as a 'loophole' and head out onto the fells.
They are still calling for everyone to stay off the mountains in case they need rescuing which would put more pressure on the NHS which it doesn't need during the current pandemic.
Mr Warren added that the teams had handed over their PPE equipment to NHS staff so would themselves be vulnerable if they had to attend a call out.
