What does the review of 2m mean in practice?

25th June 2020

From 4 July, people should still stay 2m apart and only ‘1m plus’, which is one metre plus mitigations, only where 2m is not viable. These mitigations will depend on the workplace or setting. For example, on public transport, people must wear a face covering, as it is not always possible to stay 2m apart.

In other spaces, mitigations could include installing screens, making sure people face away from each other, putting up handwashing facilities, minimising the amount of time you spend with people outside your household or bubble, and being outdoors.

You must maintain social distancing wherever possible.
