The rule of six returns on 29 March
The “Stay at Home” order ends on Monday 29 March. From then, outdoor gatherings of up to six people are allowed in any outdoor space (including private gardens).
This means that, from 29 March, intercollegiate halls residents from different households will be allowed to socialise outside in groups of up to six people. Residents from different households (i.e. different floors/flats in the hall) still may not socialise indoors. The ban on indoors household mixing is currently predicted to be relaxed on 17 May.
Outdoor sports facilities such as tennis and basketball courts, and open-air swimming pools, will also be allowed to reopen from 29 March, and people will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports.
The government is still saying that 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. Holidays abroad will not be allowed.
