Changes in rules for Social contact
July 4, 2020N/A
Please see www.gov.uk/corona for more information.
Principally, from today the law on meeting people outside ones own family has changed. It is now allowed to visit one other household indoors or outdoors. This includes those in ones chosen support bubble.
Whilst many businesses, premises, facilities and places of worship etc. will now be allowed to open it is still important that social distancing of 2m is maintained wherever possible. And especially with those outside ones immediate family.
The social distance of 2m can be reduced to 1m plus (The plus means where precautions are taken such as screens and use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) mainly in the workplace.
We are now allowed to meet up to six people from different households as long as social distancing is maintained. The maximum number of people allowed to meet in one place would appear to be limited to 30. This would seem to exclude planned events such as the Festival of Transport from happening!
Quite how Pubs and restaurants will operate under these conditions remains to be seen!
There is now a good possibility of being able to plan some small events at BHRS etc as long as the social distancing measures are complied with.
