Important to get the word out

This message was posted by Tamar Coaches – but will apply to other coach companies out there so is important to get the word out there so it does not get lost in all the confusion over the new rules…

The recent government announcement about social gatherings being limited to six people does not put an end to group coach day trips, holidays and other events.

There has already been confusion over what is allowed when privately and informally planned compared to what a business can now safely and legally offer.

The new legal prohibition is designed to enable the authorities to crack down on privately and informally organised gatherings where no social distancing is being observed and comes on the back of rises in positive tests among younger people.

Here is the important distinction from the guidance that applies to coach trips and group visits.

Businesses and venues following COVID-19 Secure guidelines can host larger groups... Premises or locations which are COVID-19 Secure will be able to hold more than 30 people, subject to their own capacity limits, although any individual groups should not interact with anyone outside of the group they are attending with.

In other words, group events are permitted when professionally organised by businesses who have made risk assessments and put in place good practices for Covid safety. It is important, of course, that within the larger group people maintain social distancing between household and bubble groups.
