• Why do they insist on making these announcements and then not updating the .gov guidance??

    We’re in tier 4 (Hertfordshire) and we’re in a childcare support bubble (child under 1) with my wife’s parents.

    During the press conference:

    1. Those in tier four are banned from travelling outside their tier (including for Christmas)
    2. “If you’re elderly or lonely” you have the consolation of forming a bubble

    Are childcare support bubbles still a thing? Can they travel across tiers? What about when another household (brother in law & wife) are there on Christmas Day?

    It feels like these things could be easily understood from the .gov if the bullets are updated but, with the changes coming in 6 hours, I don’t even know if I should pop over quickly and deliver presents (they live 20 mins down the road) or quickly pop to Tesco now that we’re eating alone for the next two weeks.

  • Are childcare support bubbles still a thing? Can they travel across tiers?

    I think so. But don't forget childcare bubbles are only for childcare anyway, bit social. So it's okay for your kids to have lunch at your folks house but you can't join them.

  • I'd take the presents today.
