A maximum of six people can be seated together. Children aged 12 and under are not counted in the total. More than six will be permitted if they all belong to a single household, if it is not more than 10. Children aged 12 and under are not counted in the total.
Venues will also be required to collect customer details to help with the Test, Trace, Protect contact tracing programme.

There must be no live music or dancing. Ambient music should be at a level that permits normal conversation.
A person responsible for a hospitality business must take reasonable measures to ensure that social distancing measures are maintained at all times to limit the risk of transmission of the coronavirus.
