From 4th July:

  • Social Distancing. Remains at 2m where it is possible, but can be reduced to 1m WITH MITIGATIONS e.g.avoid F2F, good ventilation, reducing number of people, screens, face coverings and the fewer contacts you have the safer you will be.


  • You can meet with another household. Inside or outside and can stay overnight but must social distance
