From 14 September, it has been illegal for groups of more than six people to take part in social gatherings in all parts of England except places which have a local lockdown where rules may be tighter.
What you can and can’t do under the new ‘rule of six’.
The number of people allowed to meet-up socially indoors and outdoors is six, so meeting up socially in homes, venues like restaurants, and outdoor spaces like parks will all be affected.
The new rules don’t affect workplaces, organised sports and some community venue activities may still be able to go ahead. Places of worship, cafes and restaurants are also exempt but have to follow the rules such as social distancing and collecting contact details of those attending. Some holidays may have to be cancelled.
Can I still see my family, including grandchildren?
Yes, if the number of people in the gathering is six or under. Households or support bubbles of more than six people are exempt. Weddings and funerals are still allowed to have up to 30 people attending.
