There are still circumstances in which you are allowed to meet others from outside your household or support bubble in larger groups, but this should not be for socialising and only for permitted purposes.
A full list of these circumstances will be included in the regulations and includes:
For work, or providing voluntary or charitable services. This includes picketing outside workplaces. This can include work in other people’s homes where necessary – for example, for nannies, cleaners, social care workers providing support to children and families, or tradespeople.
Where a work meeting does not need to take place in a private home or garden, it should not – for example, although you can meet a personal trainer, you should do so in a public outdoor place
In a childcare bubble(for the purposes of childcare only)
for registered childcare, or for supervised activities for children where this enables a parent to work, seek work, attend education or training, or for respite care
Education or training – meaning education related to a formal curriculum or training that relates to work or obtaining work
