In line with Government advice and the new law ‘Rule of 6’ please follow the key behaviours identified below to keep you, your family and colleagues safe from COVID-19:
Rule of 6 - Limits on the number of people you can see socially have changed.
When meeting friends and family you do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with) you must not meet in a group of more than 6, indoors or outdoors.
This is against the law in England and the police will have the powers to enforce these legal limits, including to issue fines (fixed penalty notices) of £100, doubling for further breaches up to a maximum of £3,200.
When seeing friends and family you do not live with you should:
• Meet in groups of 6 or less
• Follow social distancing rules
• Limit how many different people you see socially over a short period of time
• Meet people outdoors where practical: meeting people outdoors is safer than meeting people indoors because fresh air provides better ventilation Key behaviours
• HANDS - Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds.
• FACE - Wear a face covering in clinical settings
• FACE – Wear a face mask in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
• SPACE - Stay two metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or one metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors).
