The Government has updated its national lockdown guidance to reflect new changes to the rules in England which came into force on 29 March.
From this date:
- People are able to meet outdoors either in a group of six (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to two households (each household can include existing support bubbles, if eligible). This includes private gardens
- People are able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports with any number of people (outdoor sports venues and facilities will be able to reopen)
- Childcare and supervised activities are allowed outdoors for all children
- Formally organised parent and child groups are able to take place outdoors for up to fifteen attendees. Children under five will not be counted in this number.
The public is however advised to stay local as much as possible, to continue to work from home and keep journeys to a minimum.
The new rules come as COVID-19 cases in Greater Lincolnshire hit 57,746 (as of Monday 29 March).
