New Rules On Gatherings In Some Parts of Northern England

We are sorry to hear this. I hope it doesn’t affect you too badly and will with luck and sensible people soon be reversed.
 
New rules on social gatherings will be introduced in Northern England to stop the spread of COVID-19. These changes will also apply in Leicester city. This will affect any events being planed in these areas.
 
This is in response to an increasing trend in the number of cases per 100,000 people in the area, and data from PHE and the JBC which suggests transmission among households is a key infection pathway in the area.
 
The areas that these changes apply to are:
• The Greater Manchester area
• Pendle
• Hyndburn
• Burnley
• Rossendale
• Blackburn with Darwen
• Bradford
• Calderdale
• Kirklees
• Leicester City
 
It means people in these areas will not be permitted to mix with other households (apart from those in their support bubbles) in private homes or gardens.
