Can Tier 2 travel to Tier 1?
While the Government’s written advice states that Tier 3 residents shouldn’t travel to the other Tiers, it says nothing explicitly about Tier 2 residents travelling to Tier 1.
Can I still go on holiday if I am in a Tier 2 location?
You can still go on holiday if you are in a location in tier 2, with hotels and self-catered accommodation remaining open.
However, the new rules mean you can only go on holiday with your own household, and are not allowed to mix with other people.
You can still meet with people outside, up to six people.
The main advice is to avoid travelling somewhere with a higher risk.
The gov.uk/coronavirus site says: “You should also avoid travelling to any part of the country subject to higher local COVID alert levels.”
“You can still go on holiday outside of high alert level areas, but you must only do this with people in your household or support bubble.
“When travelling, it is important that you respect the rules in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and do not travel to different parts of the UK where their intended activities there would be prohibited by legislation passed by the relevant devolved administration.
In short; you are advised not to! We are asking those in Tier 3 NOT to travel to Baxby Manor please. We will re-arrange your dates for next year.
RULE OF 6The government announcement does not mean you cannot come if you are more than 6 people, (i.e you have booked more than one pitch/unit). The pitches/units are adequately (more than 2 metres) apart and there are no more than 4 or 6 persons permitted in/on one unit/pitch anyway. To all intents and purposes so long as you keep to your pitch or unit after the 14th September you will not be breaking the law even if you are meeting family or friends at The Hideaway.You just cannot all sit together in one tent or gazebo, and/or be closer than 2 metres from one another.You could for example all sit around one campfire but just at opposite sides so as to maintain the 2 metre distance.Unless there is a national lockdown our normal cancellations and amendments policies apply.Please be aware that from 14th September anyone not keeping to the 6-person rule will be breaking the law and we as a business have been asked to report anyone breaking this rule! We will then be left with no alternative but to ask you to leave with no refund offered.I have copied some info extracted from the BH&HPA (British Holiday and Holiday Parks Association) below;“ENGLAND
Rule of Six
A useful explanation of the different application of the Rule of Six in the four countries of the UK is provided by the BBC here.
The rules are quite different:
- a maximum of six in any setting, including children in England but with no limit on the number of households
- in Northern Ireland, the rule of six applies indoors with a limit of two households
- children under 12 are excluded in counting the six in Scotland but with a maximum of two households indoors and out
- in Wales, children under 11 are excluded, and the rule of 6 applies indoors requiring only members of the ‘exclusive extended household’.
Guidance on the rule in England confirms that whilst holidays and stays in second homes are permitted, ‘you should not go on holiday in England with people you do not live with (or who are not in your support bubble) in a group larger than 6 people’. Westminster Government have confirmed that where people are now on holiday in breach of the rule of six, then they should make immediate changes to comply.
Despite calls to exclude children from the English rule of six, Westminster Government have confirmed there are no plans to do so, but the hope is that the rule should apply for as short a time as possible.
Whilst the legal obligation is currently on the individual to comply with the rule of six, regulations will be laid for England this week so that there will be enforcement against ‘egregious’ breeches by businesses.
The Government COVID-19 secure guidance for England on this link has been updated to include both:
- the track and trace and
- the rule of six requirements.”
