Meeting people

The following laws apply to everyone in Middlesbrough:

  • You must not meet people who are not in your household, in private homes
  • You must not meet people who are not in your household, anywhere indoors - for example, in pubs, restaurants, or bars
  • You must not arrange to go to another town to meet up with people from another household in Middlesbrough - for example, going to a restaurant in Stockton to meet up with friends from Middlesbrough
  • You must not meet up with people who live in another town, either in private homes, or anywhere indoors - for example, in pubs, restaurants, or bars

We use ‘household’ to mean either people you live with, or people you’ve formed a ‘support bubble’ with.

We strongly advise that you do not meet up outdoors with anyone who is not in your household. If you do, you are legally required to follow the ‘rule of 6’. This means you must meet in groups of 6 people or less. You must follow social distancing rules and stay 2m apart. The more often you meet people, the higher your risk of catching coronavirus, so you should try to limit the number of different people you meet up with.
