Sheffield High Category Rules and Restrictions

Sheffield High Category Rules and Restrictions

The government has introduced local COVID alert levels in a bid to ensure “the right levels of intervention in the right places to manage outbreaks”. Local COVID alert levels set out information for local authorities, residents and workers about what to do and how to manage the outbreak in their area. Local COVID alert levels are sometimes called ‘tiers’ or known as a ‘local lockdown’.

Sheffield has been placed in the ‘High’ category which means regarding seeing friends and family:

  • you must not meet socially with friends and family indoors in any setting unless you live with them or have formed a ‘support bubble’ with them. This includes private homes, and any other indoor venues such as pubs and restaurants. informal childcare can also be provided via childcare bubbles.

A support bubble is a close support network between a household with only one adult in the home or a household with a single parent living with children who were under 18 on 12 June 2020 (known as a single-adult household ) and one other household of any size.

  • you may continue to see friends and family you do not live with (or have not formed a support bubble with) outside, including in a garden or other outdoor space. When you do so, you must not meet in a group of more than 6. This limit of 6 includes children of any age.
  • if you live in a High alert level area you also cannot meet indoors with people outside of the area, unless exceptions apply.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
