Let’s work together to protect our Tameside community

 It’s important, now more than ever, that we continue with our efforts to protect each other. 
 

The government has published the ‘COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021’ setting out the roadmap out of the current lockdown for England. This explains how the restrictions included in this guidance will be lifted over time, subject to COVID-19 data.
 
Changes on 29 March
 
Social contact
From 29 March, outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) of either 6 people (the Rule of 6) or 2 households are be allowed.
 
Travel

  • The ‘stay at home’ rule will end on 29 March but many restrictions will remain in place.
  • People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes.
  • Travel abroad will continue to be prohibited, other than for a small number of permitted reasons.
 
Changes on 12 April 
 
Business and activities
 
  • Opening of non-essential retail; personal care premises such as hairdressers and nail salons; and public buildings, including libraries and community centres.
  • Indoor leisure facilities such as gyms will also reopen (but only for use by people on their own or in household groups); as will most outdoor attractions and settings including outdoor hospitality venues, zoos, theme parks, and drive-in cinemas.
  • Self-contained accommodation such as campsites and holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households, can also reopen.
  • Hospitality venues can now serve people outdoors at and there will be no need for customers to order a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks and no curfew, although customers must order, eat and drink while seated (‘table service’).

 
Wider social contact rules will apply in all these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households.
 
Events
 
While funerals can continue with up to 30 mourners, the number of people able to attend weddings, receptions and commemorative events such as wakes will rise to 15.
 
Full details of these rules can be found on the gov.uk website – National Lockdown: Stay at Home
