2016 Subaru Forester - How often and how far to run

How often and how far should my Subaru be driven to keep it in good shape during this time of self containment?

If you have a battery tender it could easily sit for four months. If not, my preference would be for once a week for at least five miles, others will have different opinions.

Vehicles set on used car lots for weeks and months all the time. Sometimes a battery pack is needed to start them and the battery charged but no harm done.
