As set out in Our Plan to Rebuild, the Government is introducing a range of adjustments to social distancing measures, timing these carefully according to both the current transmission rate of the virus and the Government’s ability to ensure safety. The steps for modifying social distancing measures are set out in the plan, with strict conditions to safely move from each step to the next.

Public Health England recently updated its guidance for households with grandparents, parents and children living together where a member of the household is aged 70 or over, or has an underlying health condition, meaning they are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.
