12 April: changes to lockdown guidance

You can meet outdoors:

  • either in a group of 6 from any number of households, or
  • your household can meet up outside with another household, even if that takes you over the rule of 6

If your living circle or household is large, and you meet up with another large living circle or household, remember there is a maximum limit of 30 people allowed in public spaces.

Many other restrictions remain in place. Check government guidance about what restrictions remain in place and what has changed.
