Rule of Six Guidance – COVID 19

The Government has published further guidance on the new “Rule of Six” including a FAQ (note that this applies just to England)

  • Meeting Others Safely

This new guidance provides more detail  on the exemptions, which include:

  • Weddings
  • Education and training
  • Work or voluntary/charitable services
  • Some organised indoor and outdoor sports, physical activity and exercise classes (further linked details are provided on this)
  • Youth groups or activities

The guidance also clarifies that  COVID-19 secure venues can continue to host people up to their social distancing capacity but that no one can visit in a group of more than 6 (except for the exemptions and where the household (including bubble) is greater than 6)

  • Rule of Six FAQ

There is also a FAQ document to go with the guidance which states, among other things:

  • People should not go on holiday in England with people outside their household (including bubble) in a group larger than 6 people
  • Where people can travel to or what they can do on a holiday is not affected provided that the group size is not exceeded
  • This does not change the guidance on what to do if someone catches Coronavirus while on holiday
