Guidance on holidays in areas with local coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions in England

The Government has today published guidance for England on what people should do if they are on holiday in an area with local coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions or live in a restricted area and are planning on taking a holiday outside the area. The guidance covers

Staying inside the area

Steps you should take

  • If you live inside the area, you should only socialise indoors with members of your own household or support bubble.
  • You can only stay in a private home – which includes self-catered accommodation such as holiday cottages, apartments or boats – with members of your own household or support bubble.
  • You can stay in a hotel or similar accommodation (for example, a hostel or bed and breakfast) with another household, but should avoid sharing rooms with people you do not live with or otherwise socialising indoors, for example in each other’s rooms, in reception areas, or in restaurants and bars.
  • Sharing a caravan with another household is being advised against. You should not share private vehicles to travel to your holiday destination.
  • You can travel into an area with local restrictions on holiday. Whilst inside the area, you should follow the guidance set out above
Travelling outside the area

Steps you should take
