You have no items in your shopping cart.
On 22 September, the government announced some additional measures to slow the spread of the Coronavirus. The thinking is that a limited package of restrictions now will be key to preventing a more substantial lockdown further down the line.
Using the official guidance from www.gov.uk, we’ve put together a small something to help you interpret the new rules.
(*these restrictions vary slightly by region and local lockdown status, check to see if your local region is affected on the government website).
- ✓ Hospitality (pubs and restaurants) must close at 22:00
- ✓ You should work from home if possible
- ✓ Face masks compulsory for staff and non-seated customers
- ✓ Table service only
- ✓ Fines up for rule breakers
In England you can still visit people indoors, but only in a group up to 6. This is the golden rule, and replaces the previous guidance on households. Children are included in the 6. Schools are staying open, and it’s likely to stay this way.
Hospitality will stay open, but the 10pm curfew stands as of now. From 24 September it is mandatory to wear a face covering in a pub or restaurant, except for when eating or drinking. Day trips to outdoor spaces are still allowed.
Holiday are still allowed, but be sure to check with travel providers and the FCO’s
