Government advice on local restrictions is available here.

The Solihull area is one of the areas in the West Midlands where greater care must be taken to reduce the spread of coronavirus. This means that for those of who live here we must not:

  • host people you do not live with in your home or garden, unless they’re in your support bubble
  • meet people you do not live with in their home or garden, whether inside or outside of the affected areas, unless they’re in your support bubble

Your household is defined as the people you live with and any support bubble.

There are now powers to fine anyone who disregards the instructions. People aged 18 or over will be able to be fined:

  • £100 for the first offence, lowered to £50 if paid within 14 days
  • £200 for the second offence, then doubling for each further offence up to a maximum of £3,200

If you travel outside of the affected local areas, you must not meet or host people you do not live with in private homes or gardens unless they are in your support bubble.

When meeting friends and family you do not live with (or have formed a support bubble with) you must not meet in a group of more than 6. Further detail can be found in the guidance for meeting others safely including associated exemptions.

Remember: HANDS – FACE – SPACE
