The number of people who can gather together, indoors or outdoors, will be set at a maximum of six from two households.
The restrictions do not apply where there is other sector-specific guidance in force, for example for gyms, for childcare or for organised sports, and there will be some other limited exceptions for larger households, education, and places of worship.
