The following laws now apply to everyone in Middlesbrough:
- You must not meet people who are not in your household, in private homes
- You must not meet people who are not in your household, anywhere indoors – for example, in pubs, restaurants, or bars
- You must not arrange to go to another town to meet up with people from another household in Middlesbrough – for example, going to a restaurant in Stockton to meet up with friends from Middlesbrough
- You must not meet up with people who live in another town, either in private homes, or anywhere indoors – for example, in pubs, restaurants, or bars
We use ‘household’ to mean either people you live with, or people you’ve formed a ‘support bubble’ with.
Although you’ll be able to meet up outdoors with people who are not part of your household, we are still strongly advising that you do not. If you do, you’re legally required to follow the ‘rule of 6’. This means you must meet in groups of 6 people or less, and children are included in the total of 6. You must follow social distancing rules and stay 2m apart. The more often you meet people, the higher your risk of catching coronavirus, so you should try to limit the number of different people you meet up with.
