24 Jun Easing of Lockdown Restrictions from the 4th July
On the 23rd June, the government released further guidance on the easing of lockdown restrictions.
In England, you can meet with people you do not live with in 3 types of groups:
– You can continue to meet in any outdoor space in a group of up to 6 people from different households
– Single adult households can continue to form an exclusive ‘support bubble’ with one other household
– From the 4th July, you can also meet in a group of 2 households, in any location – public, private, indoors and outdoors. This does not need to be the same household each time.
At all times, it is important to maintain social distancing from the people you do not live with, even inside someone’s home. As of the 4th July, social distancing measures will be reduced to ‘1 metre plus’.
Continued guidance to wear facemasks, washing of hands and to maintain social distancing still stands. If you have coronavirus symptoms, self-isolating rules will apply and do not invite people into your household or garden.
As of the 6th July, those in single adult households and are shielding may also form a ‘support bubble’ with one other household. All those in a support bubble will be able to spend time together inside each other’s homes, including overnight without needing to socially distance.
All cafes and restaurants, pubs, hairdressers, places of worship and hotels will be able to reopen from the 4th July with measures in place. Gyms, nail bars and beauty salons, tattoo and piercing parlours, swimming pools, indoor play areas and conference centres must remain closed. Further guidance for specific businesses will be available soon.
It is recommended that local businesses contact the Newbury BID, providing them details of your reopening arrangements to be included on their website https://visitnewbury.org.uk/open-for-business/
