Further to my previous email, the Government has now published further guidance on social gatherings.
With regards to funerals this is clear and unequivocal:
- Places of worship, except for funerals attended by immediate families are closed for social gatherings.
- Every citizen must comply with these new measures. The relevant authorities, including the police, will begiven the powers to enforce them – including through fines and dispersing gatherings.
- These measures are effective immediately.
Immediate family are classified as:
- Children (and partners)
In respect of this I would be grateful if this message could be circulated accordingly.
