Rule Of 6 and What It Means At Little Bees
Confused by the Governments new rule?
Here's what you need to know:
From Monday 14th September, the law is “you must not meet with other households socially in groups of more than 6. This law does not apply to individual households or support bubbles of more than 6, who will still be able to gather together”.
Q: Can the 6 people visiting be from more than 2 families?
A: Yes, they can be from several different families forming a group of up to 6 people in total.
Q: Is that 6 people including the adults, or is it 6 children plus adults?
A: The 6 people includes both the adults and the children (so 4 children and 2 adults for example)
Q: If we meet up with another family at Little Bees, can we become a bigger group than 6?
A: No, we can’t have more than 6 people gathered together. You would be breaking the law and both you and us could be fined
Q: We are a family of 7 people, can we still visit?
A: Yes, you can all still visit as a family group, but you can’t meet up with anyone else
Q: What about birthday parties?
A: You are very welcome to celebrate a birthday at Little Bees, but the limit of people who can attend the celebration is 6. You are welcome to bring a birthday cake, but no candles please. We are not running our parties just now, so you simply book tickets online to visit.
Q: What is a support bubble?
A: A support bubble allows single parents with children under 18 to join with another household to form a support network. It helps those who have felt isolated during the pandemic.
It means the adult is able to have close contact with the other household in the same way they would if they actually lived together – they do not have to remain socially-distanced. Anyone in a support bubble essentially counts as one household. You can only be in one support bubble.
