  • Mixing indoors only with people in the same household or bubble
  • Sticking to the rule of six outdoors (including private gardens)
  • COVID-secure businesses can re-open
  • Spectators will be allowed to watch sport, with a maximum crowd capacity outdoors of 50% of the capacity of the stadium or 2,000 people, whichever is smaller. Indoors, the maximum capacity is 1,000
  • Indoor entertainment venues, such as cinemas, casinos and bowling alleys, can open, but must close at 11pm
  • Everyone who can work from home should do so.

Please familiarise yourself with the full list of new restrictions by visiting the GOV.UK website.
