Christmas Message – Tier 4 Guidance

Tier 4: Stay at home


If you live or work in a tier 4 area:

  • you cannot meet other people indoors including over the Christmas period, unless you live with them, or they are part of your existing support bubble
  • when outdoors, you can exercise or meet in a public outdoor place with people you live with, your support bubble (or as part of a childcare bubble), or with one other person
  • you must not leave or be outside of your home except for work, education or other legally permitted reasons.

These rules will not be relaxed for Christmas.
