CHRISTMAS GUIDANCE

Published:

Categories: News

The Scottish Government has agreed a cautious and limited relaxation of the rules on household meetings to support people over the Christmas period.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon stressed it is clear that there is a risk inherent in any relaxation of the restrictions and asked everyone to consider very carefully whether the opportunity to mix for a few days is necessary given the risk of spreading the virus.

 

Some of the key points are:

  • a “bubble” should be formed household to household only (i.e. different people in a household should not pick their own bubble).
  • between 23 and 27 December, people can meet in an exclusive “bubble” composed of three households.
  • you should stay with your “bubble” where they are hosting you and you should follow the travel advice for the level you are in (e.g. people being hosted in a level 3 area cannot go on an outing to a level 2 area).
  • within your “bubble”, you can gather in a home, an outdoor place or a place of worship
  • in all other settings – eg. hospitality, entertainment venues – those who have formed a bubble must only socialise with members of their own household.
  • households deciding to form a bubble will be advised to limit social contact before and after the period of relaxation.
