Couples Will No Longer Be Able To Hook Up During Second Lockdown

Couples Will No Longer Be Able To Hook Up During Second Lockdown

As the entirety of England prepares to move into a second lockdown - albeit not quite as strict as the first - there are still some people who are set to lose out, namely couples who don't live together.

Under the new restrictions, which commence at 12:01am on Thursday morning, they'll no longer be allowed to meet up indoors, let alone anything else that they might have in mind.

In fact, even the more adventurous amongst those couples will be left denied, because if they meet outside they'll have to stay at least two metres apart.

Ministers were thought to be considering another set of guidelines for those in 'support bubbles' as they've become known, but with Boris Johnson's announcement yesterday, it seems as if little is going to change from Lockdown 1.0.

Under the current rules, couples who don't live with each other are only permitted to visit each other's homes if they've formed one of those support bubbles, and even then there are other rules governing what they can do.

So, as the guidelines state right now, couples who live apart but in shared accommodation can't meet indoors because one of the households has to be a single person household to count.

That means that as long as one of the persons in the bubble lives on their own, you're good to go.

The new tougher restrictions were announced yesterday at a delayed press conference featuring the Prime Minister and his now familiar colleagues Professor Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance.

After the measures gain Parliamentary approval - which you'd have to imagine that they will - the second lockdown will start on Thursday 5 November and last until at least Wednesday 2 December.

Takeaway Pints And Alcohol Sales Banned Under Second Lockdown Rules

published ata month ago

Supermarkets can stay open, and people are once again asked to stay at home unless leaving for exercise or recreation.

Now, that recreation means something like a walk in a park - chance would be a fine thing just now - or to sit on a bench and read a book alone or something.

There is to be no mixing of households either inside or outside, except for essential support and essential childcare purposes.

Unlike last time, the schools and educational establishments such as universities are going to remain open.

Announcing the new rules, Johnson said: "We will get through this but we must act now to contain this autumn's surge.

"We're not going back to the full scale lockdown of March and April, the measures I've outlined are less restrictive.

"But I'm afraid from Thursday the basic message is the same: Stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives."
