Child Arrangements and Covid-19


On 4th January 2021 a further national lockdown was announced by the Prime Minister with an order to stay at home.

You can however meet others from outside your household in limited situations, one of which is to facilitate arrangements for contact between separated parents.

Government guidance on childcare bubbles is as follows: –

“If you live in a household with anyone aged under 14, you can form a childcare bubble. This allows friends or family from one other household to provide informal

childcare.  You must not meet socially with your childcare bubble, and must avoid seeing members of your childcare and support bubbles at the same time.”
