New guidance from the Government confirms that there are no set limits on the numbers who can be involved in planned non-professional activity taking place outside and/or in a Covid-secure venues in England.
It does however specify that organisations must ensure an appropriate COVID-19 risk assessment is carried out and that the number of individuals involved are able to be socially distanced at all times.
