If you have been in close contact with, but do not live with, a person who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), make sure you follow the government guidance on what to do.
Meeting people and support bubbles
New guidance has been published, setting out how the public can see people that they do not live with while protecting themselves and others from coronavirus.
The guidance provides advice on making a support bubble with another household. It outlines key principles the public should follow when outside their home. It also provides advice on a range of issues when meeting outdoors.
In England, there are 2 ways for people to meet those outside their household:
- meeting outdoors in a group of up to 6 people with those you do not live with, whilst observing social distancing guidelines and keeping at least 2 metres apart
- from 13 June, single adult households – this is adults who live alone or with dependent children only – can form a ‘support bubble’ with one other household
The FAQ document on what the public can and can’t do during the coronavirus outbreak has been updated to reflect the latest announcements.
