Coronavirus (COVID-19)—inter-household mixing restricted in seven areas of North-East

The Department of Health and Social Care has announced that, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 30 September 2020 new measures will be brought into law which will restrict inter-household mixing in indoor settings in Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Northumberland and Sunderland. The new measures will prohibit inter-household mixing in pubs and restaurants as well as households, but schools and workplaces are not included so long as they are 'COVID-secure'. Fines can be given to anyone who does not adhere to the guidance.

Childcare bubbles can still be formed in the above areas to allow families to share caring responsibilities with another household, as long as they are consistent. People in support bubbles in these areas can also continue to meet in any setting.
