Anyone who is caring for children under 14 years old or caring for vulnerable adults is allowed to mix households. This includes both formal and informal arrangements, for example, family members caring for another family member in a different household.

In some cases, the rule of six does not apply, for example, as part of an outdoors exercise class or taking part in outdoor sports. Also, if you are meeting for work, volunteering or training. For parent and child groups as well as formal support groups you are also allowed to meet in larger numbers too but this is only up to 15 people.

Face coverings have been required in shops, indoor public venues and on public transport since 24th July 2020. The rules for people that are exempt from wearing these haven’t changed since then.
