Rules ease for Christmas to allow families to meet up

This Christmas, the government will allow families to mix for a few days during Christmas. From the 22nd to the 28th of December, meeting from 3 different households is allowed. Your family bubble may come indoors and even stay overnight, but only for the few days.

The people meeting inside will have to form a friend or family bubble, which cannot be changed and you cannot mix with other bubbles. Also, going to church for Christmas Day and outside spaces will be permitted, but bubbles must social distance.

These eased rules will allow families to celebrate a short Christmas together and may meet together again after nearly a year of lockdown. Are you going to have a family meet up again? Also, many people are celebrating Christmas early by putting up decorations and lights. View more on the blog!

When the current national lockdown ends on the 2nd of December, England and the UK will go back into Tiers for different parts depending on the number of coronavirus cases.
