Here's when Newark and Sherwood residents can let someone into their home following Nottinghamshire being declared 'high risk' in new tier-style coronavirus system
As of today, residents in Nottinghamshire will no longer be allowed to mix with other households indoors.
It follows the new tier-style system of coronavirus restrictions announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday, where the whole of Nottinghamshire was placed in tier two — the 'high risk' category.
So, with the new restriction imposed, who will you now be allowed to let into your home?
Under new restrictions, the only time households will be allowed to mix indoors is if they are in a support or childcare bubble with another.
However, there are some exceptions as to when you can let someone inside of your home, including:
- For work or volunteering for charitable services
- For registered childcare, education or training
- For arrangements where children do not live in the same household as both their parents or guardians
- For prospective adopting parents to meet a child or children who may be placed with them
- For supervised activities provided for children, including before and after school childcare, youth groups and activities, and children’s playgroups
- For birth partners
- To see someone who is dying
- To provide emergency assistance, and to avoid injury or illness, or to escape a risk of harm
- To fulfil a legal obligation, such as attending court or jury service
- To provide care or assistance to someone vulnerable
- To facilitate a house move
- For a wedding or equivalent ceremony and wedding receptions where the organiser has carried out a risk assessment and taken all reasonable measures to limit the risk of transmission of the virus — up to a maximum of 15 people (not to take place in private dwellings)
- For funerals — up to a maximum of 30 people. Wakes and other commemorative events are permitted with up to 15 people present (not to take place in private dwellings)
- For elite sportspeople and their coaches if necessary for competition and training, as well as parents or guardians if they are a child
- For outdoor exercise and dance classes, organised outdoor sport, and licensed outdoor physical activity
- Indoor organised team sports for disabled people, and youth sport
- Support groups of up to 15 participants — formally organised groups to provide mutual aid, therapy or any other form of support (not to take place in private dwellings)
- Protests — if organised in compliance with covid-secure guidance
