The most recent government advice is to stay alert and help to control the spread of the virus. In doing this, more services have opened up again.

To keep in line with the new guidance you:

  • can take part in more outdoor and indoor activities
  • can form a suppot bubble with another household if you are a household with only one adult, or a household with one adult and dependant children
  • can visit non-essential shops and certain outdoor attractions (such as zoos and farms)
  • can visit gyms, swimming pools and dance studios
  • must maintain social distancing (keep at least 2 metres away from those outisde your household or bubble) when out and about
  • must wear a face covering when inside shops and on public transport
  • can interact with six other people from outside of your household whilst social distancing, and only when outdoors such as in a park or a private garden
  • can visit another house as long as there is only one extra household visiting at a time
  • can return to work if you cannot work from home, but your employer must ensure your work space is 'COVID-19 secure'

This guidance will be changing slightly from 4th July, with more businesses opening and you being able to go into other people's houses. Read here for more information.


Other guidance:

  • Ensure you are at least 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household or bubble
  • Do not go to other people's houses, unless they are in your bubble
  • Wash your hands, often, for 20 seconds
  • Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth with unclean hands
