What are the rules for Tier 2 over Christmas?

Up to three households in Tier 2 will be able to meet inside over a period of five days over Christmas.

Social distancing and travel rules will be scrapped from December 23 to 27 -meaning families will be able to hug those in their bubble and stay overnight.

Cops won’t be expected to patrol to enforce the new rules – but will step in if people break them by hosting huge gatherings and hold parties.
