Christmas Bubbles are no longer allowed for Tier 4 areas

Residents of London and the Southeast are not allowed to mix for Christmas and must stay at home.

You are not permitted to travel outside of Tier 4 areas and may not meet with anyone outside of your household or support bubble whilst the restrictions are in place, including on Christmas Day other than for legally permitted reasons such as:

  • travel to work where you cannot work from home
  • travel to education and for caring responsibilities
  • visit (including staying overnight with) those in your support bubble - or your childcare bubble for childcare
  • attend hospital, GP and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are concerned about your health
