6 things you still aren’t allowed to do under lockdown rules

The coronavirus lockdown is still in place across the UK, but today sees the lifting of some restrictions.

Different rules apply across the four nations, as they take steps to return to normal life.

The lockdown was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday, March 23 and major restrictions to daily life were introduced in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus.

In England from Monday, June 1 some of the rules have been eased, but there are still many things you can’t do.

Visit anyone else’s homes

The public is still not allowed to get together inside, as scientist believe this is the strongest opportunity for transmission of the virus.

While you can meet in groups of up to six in a public place such as a park, you must still maintain a two-metre distance between you and anyone outside your household.

People can also meet in small groups in private gardens and are allowed to walk through a private home to get to a back garden and use the toilet.

Visitors are advised not to touch anything while walking through, wear a mask, and if using the toilet disinfect it after use.

People are still allowed to move to a friend’s address for several days to allow a “cooling-off” period following a domestic argument.

Staying overnight anywhere but your own home

You are still not allowed to go to hotels, hostels, B&B’s, campsites, friend’s homes, or even stay in a campervan at the side of the road.

You are not allowed to stay at second homes.

Share a private car

You should avoid sharing a private vehicle with members of another household as you will not be able to keep to strict social distancing guidelines.

If you have to travel with people outside your household group, for example in order to travel to work, the government says you should try to share the transport with the same people each time.

The government advises you to wear a face mask, face away from them, keep journeys as short as possible and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds on arrival.
