It looks like we're all going to enjoy a lovley summer this year, and the good weather is great news as it helps us get out and about, socialise, exercise all while Socially Distancing and staying safe!

In order to keep you and your family and friends safe, it remains very important that you stay alert when meeting family and friends.

You are advised to socially distance yourself from anyone who is not in your household or bubble. This means staying 2meters away if possible or 1meter with a face covering, try not sit face to face with anyone.

  • only socialise indoors with members of up to 2 households ‒ this includes when dining out or going to the pub. If you meet up with another household you should socially distance from them.
  • socialise outdoors in a group of up to 6 people from different households or up to 2 households (anyone in your support bubble counts as one household)
  • do not hold or attend celebrations (such as parties) where it is difficult to maintain social distancing and avoid close contact
  • not stay overnight away from your home with members of more than 2 households (including your support bubble)
  • limit social interaction with anyone outside the group you are attending a place with, even if you see other people you know and adhere to social distancing guidance
  • try to limit the number of people you see, especially over short periods of time, to keep you and them safe, and save lives. The more people with whom you interact, the more chances we give the virus to spread

It is against the law for gatherings of more than 30 people to take place in private homes (including gardens and other outdoor spaces).

You are required by law to wear face coverings on public transport, and in shops, supermarkets, indoor shopping centres, banks, building societies, post offices, and indoor transport hubs. This will help to protect you and anyone you come into contact with and is critical to keeping everyone safe.

Please also remember that you should wash or sanitise your hands regularly and wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing is difficult and there are people you do not normally meet.

It is critical that you follow these guidelines to keep both yourself and others safe.
