Covid-19 Supporting our residents

New COVID guidance

The Government has delayed Step 4 of the roadmap and we remain in Step 3 restrictions, although there are some easings from 21 June:

Weddings and funerals

The 30-person limit will be lifted for weddings and wakes. There will be no set limit on the number of attendees, but venues must adhere to Covid-secure guidance, maintain social distancing and provide table service. All weddings in private settings, such as gardens, must have completed a Covid risk assessment to ascertain how many guests they can host safely.

Large-scale events

Event pilots will continue, including some Euro 2020 matches, Wimbledon, and some arts and music performances. Attendees will show proof of vaccination or a recent negative test.

These restrictions remain in place:

Social contact  

  • Maximum of 30 people outdoors
  • Groups of up to 6 people or 2 households can meet indoors
  • People should continue to keep their distance from anyone not in their household or support bubble.

Business and activities

  • Indoor hospitality reopens - venues do not have to serve a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks but customers must order, eat and drink while seated.
  • Indoor adult group sports and exercise classes allowed
  • Indoor entertainment venues such as cinemas and children’s play area can open
  • The rest of the accommodation sector reopens, including hotels, hostels and B&Bs

Travel

  • Domestic overstays allowed
  • People will be able to travel to green list countries, if they permit inbound travel.
