Govt Advice: Meeting people from outside your household

This guidance explains how you can now see people you do not live with, while protecting yourself and others from coronavirus.

In England, there are 2 ways that you can do this:

  • meeting outdoors in a group of up to 6 people with those you do not live with, but you should do this while observing social distancing guidelines and keeping at least 2 metres apart
  • single adult households – in other words adults who live alone or with dependent children only – can form a ‘support bubble’ with one other household. All those in a support bubble will be able to spend time together inside each others’ homes, including overnight, without needing to stay 2 metres apart. We are making this change to support the loneliest and most isolated. It is a targeted intervention to provide extra support to some of those most impacted by the most difficult effects of the current social restrictions, while ensuring we continue to keep the rate of transmission down

You must not:

  • meet other people indoors – including in their home or your home – unless you are in a support bubble, or for other limited circumstances listed in law
  • meet outdoors in a group of more than 6 with people who are not in your household or (where applicable) support bubble, or for other limited circumstances listed in law
  • form a support bubble with another household if neither you nor they are in a single adult household
  • stay overnight in another household that is not in your support bubble, unless it is for the limited set of circumstances outlined in law
