Coronavirus: Staying safe over the festive period

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

Between 23 and 27 December, the Government is allowing people to form a ‘Christmas bubble’ made up of a maximum of three households. You can only be in one bubble and once formed, you cannot change it.

Please remember though that the more people you spend time with, and the more time you spend together, the higher your chance of catching the virus. You can also only meet your Christmas bubble in private homes or gardens, places of worship, or public outdoor spaces. Some people are choosing to celebrate virtually with loved ones instead of forming a Christmas bubble.

Please take this into consideration when forming your Christmas bubble and making plans. If you or someone in your Christmas bubble is clinically extremely vulnerable, consider keeping the number of people in your bubble as small as you can.
