HOUSEHOLDS across Liverpool and the surrounding areas have been BANNED from meeting indoors as part of further restrictions announced this moring for the north of England after a spike in coronavirus cases.
From midnight on Friday, it has been illegal to meet in settings, such as pubs and restaurants in the Liverpool City Region, Warrington, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock told MPs on October 1 that he aimed to keep the rules for 'as short a time as possible' and 'recommended against all social mixing between households.'
People should also:
- Not attend amateur sports events as spectators
- Only visit care homes in exceptional circumstances
- Adhere to guidance against all but essential travel
Mr Hancock said £7m funding would be provided to areas affected.
If you’re in a single-adult household, you can form a support bubble with another household of any size that is not part of a support bubble with anyone else if you live by yourself – even if carers visit you to provide support or are a single parent living with children who were under 18 on 12 June 2020. These households can still form a ‘bubble’ with one other household during the new rules.
