Lockdown has started to ease. You can now meet outdoors either in a group of 6 (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to 2 households (a household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible). Check the latest rules to see what’s allowed. You can also see the government’s full plan for completely ending restrictions later in the year.
To protect yourself and others, it’s essential that you keep following the rules when you leave home.
Wash your hands
Wash your hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds, when you’re away from your home – including before and after using public transport, and before and after eating food.
Cover your face
Wearing a face covering (unless you’re exempt). This includes in public places and on public transport. View the government’s list of places you must wear a face covering.
Keep your distance
Stay 2m away from anyone not in your household. If 2m is not possible, try and keep as far away as you can.
Do not forget, the 2m rule applies to anyone who is not part of your household. This means people you don’t know, and staff members in supermarkets etc.
If you’re worried about a business not following social distancing rules, please email email@example.com with details.
