Rule of 6 | Public Health Update (14 September 2020)

Limits on the number of people we all can see socially have changed. From Monday 14 September, when meeting friends and family you do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with) you must not meet in a group of more than 6, indoors or outdoors.

The new rules mean you can only meet with people outside of your household group in a group of no more than 6 people. This applies whether you are meeting in your home, outside in the park or at a venue like a restaurant. Please remember that the principles remain, in order to stop the spread of the virus we all need to:

– Keep our distance – 2m is best
– Wear a face covering in public spaces it isn’t easy to social distance in
– Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds or more each time
– Stay at home if you have symptoms and ask for a test.
The new rules mean that when seeing friends and family you do not live with you should:
• meet in groups of 6 or less
• follow social distancing rules
• limit how many different people you see socially over a short period of time
• meet people outdoors where practical: meeting people outdoors is safer than meeting people indoors because fresh air provides better ventilation
