Update 10 September
The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government last night provided us with further clarification on the Government announcement this week of changes to permitted social interaction which come into place on Monday 14 September in England. We understand that the full regulations will be published later this week and we will update our guidance accordingly.
- Places of Worship can remain open for services and prayer. As before, the limit on the number of people is determined by the risk assessment with attendees divided into multiple groups of no more than 6 people.
- Weddings and funerals are still allowed and maximum numbers remain at 30 with people divided into multiple groups of no more than 6.
- Community Halls remain open and activities are allowed as before but within each activity, participants can be in groups that consist of no more than 6 people.
The government has emphasised that venues must be Covid-19 secure and contact details must be left for Test and Trace. More information can be read here.
