Don't give Covid for Christmas
We're all going to have to celebrate #Christmas a little differently this year following the announcement on Saturday 19 December.
As long as we keep playing our part we can still enjoy a fun and safe Christmas Day.
Guidance on Christmas bubbles with friends and family has changed - bubble can only be formed on 25 December
The plans to allow households to meet up for a five day period from 23 to 27 December have now been changed. The Government has confirmed that those who are not in a Tier 4 area (Wiltshire is in Tier 2) may see a maximum of two other households on Christmas Day (25 December) only. However, you are not allowed to meet with anyone from a Tier 4 area.
keep your Christmas bubble as small as possible. Two other households is a maximum, not a target
do not join a Christmas bubble with anyone from a Tier 4 area
stop all unnecessary social contact outside your immediate household as soon as possible and for at least five days before you meet other households in your bubble
only meet your Christmas bubble in private homes or in your garden, places of worship, or public outdoor spaces
only see your bubble on Christmas Day. Do not stay overnight and keep your visits as short as possible
stay local where possible. Avoid travelling from a high prevalence to a low prevalence area
only meet people who are not in your Christmas bubble outside your home according to the rules in the tier you live in (unless coming from a lower to a higher tier) and do not meet socially with friends and family that you do not live with in your home or garden unless they are part of your Christmas bubble
