    Rule of six image
    Latest SBC Covid-19 Newsletter → Have you downloaded the NHS COVID-19 app?.

    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 and the police will have the powers to enforce these legal limits, including to issue fines (fixed penalty notices) of £200, doubling for further breaches up to a maximum of £6,400.

    When seeing friends and family you do not live with you should:
    • meet in groups of 6 or less
    • follow social distancing rules when you meet up
    • 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
