Updated to reflect announcements on 10 June 2020.
From 13 June, you will be able to:
· Single adult households can form a ‘support bubble’ with one other household.
· All those in a support bubble will be able to spend time together inside each others’ homes, including overnight, without needing to stay 2 metres apart.
· Support bubbles should be exclusive – you should not change who is in your bubble or have close contact with anyone else you do not live with. This is critical to keeping you, and your family and friends, safe
· if you or someone in your support bubble is showing coronavirus symptoms, or otherwise self-isolating, everyone in your support bubble should stay home.
If you or a member of your support bubble is contacted as part of the test and trace programme, the individual contacted must stay at home. If the individual becomes symptomatic, everyone in the support bubble must then isolate.
· Attend your place of worship for the purposes of individual prayer
From 15 June:
· You can visit any shop and some outdoor attractions: drive-in cinemas, zoos, safari parks
· Year 10 and 12 pupils in secondary schools and further education colleges will begin to receive some face to face support
· You will have to wear a face covering on public transport
You will still be able to meet outdoors with groups of up to six people from different households, provided social distancing is observed and you stay 2 metres away from anyone outside your household or support bubble.
On 29 May 2020 the Government has updated its advice. This page sets out key FAQs to inform the public and help you prepare for these changes.
All changes will come into effect on MONDAY 1 JUNE. Until then you should follow existing guidance on social distancing.
The government has set out its plan to return life to as near normal as we can, for as many people as we can, as quickly and fairly as possible in order to safeguard livelihoods, but in a way that is safe and continues to protect our NHS.
The government has published staying safe outside your home for guidance on what the new rules will mean. These will take effect on Wednesday.
This guidance applies in England – people in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland should follow the specific rules in those parts of the UK.
