I've been scouring the news but can't seem to see anything on this. Does anyone know if anything has been said about when this might be possible? I mean going in someone's house not just the garden?

There hasn't been yet. I know from a friend who lives in Paris that they're allowed to visit houses, stay over. I think in Scotland people are allowed indoors soon as long as they socially distance. Our government have been having a laugh.

I live in Scotland and we're not allowed in peoples houses. Not sure about elsewhere.

It’s within step/phase three. So from 4th July at the earliest.

GreyGardens88 Wed 10-Jun-20 16:49:55

Just use your own common sense, socially distance and handwashing indoors. Obviously don't do it if you have symptoms.

We need to make our own decisions instead of waiting for the incompetent government to do it

Thank you for the information. My parents are in Spain and are allowed to others houses now.

@Greygardens88 - unfortunately I can't make my own decision on this. I'm an inpatient in a psychiatric hospital and until the government give the go-ahead I can't have any home-leave.

A single person household can now mix with one other household. This includes staying overnight.

Both households must only have 1 adult though

So does this mean that I can go to visit my mum? I'm not in a single person household but she is. She lives 150 miles away. Also does it mean she can hold DS? It would be amazing if we could do this

Think so!
I’m a single parent. So excited !

Chris Whitty said one adult only in each household so two adults or two single parents or one of each. Boris was vague but that is what CW said a bit later on.

I think only one household has to be a single adult (or with kid under 18).
Honestly can't believe people are still following all the government rules to the letter to this extreme anyway as this point. If you want to see your mum go see her!

@ACautionaryTale - really? You wouldn't want me making decisions for myself?? Thanks!

UndertheCedartree Wed 10-Jun-20 17:59:24

@flameprincess - I want to see my children!

Wtf is wrong with you?

What a fucking horrible comment to say to someone. reported.

"Just use your own common sense, socially distance and handwashing indoors. Obviously don't do it if you have symptoms."
And therein is the problem. People who contract the virus and are asymptomatic inadvertently transmit it to others. You cannot rely on just not having symptoms.

The scientists with the PM said it is much riskier to be indoors, irrespective of whether you social-distance, than outdoors. You are telling someone to use their common sense but your response isn't displaying any of that. No point having scientific advisors if we then ignore their advice (which is backed up with evidence to support it).

PintOfBovril Wed 10-Jun-20 18:17:26

I reported that nasty comment. OP please try to take no notice, I know it's hard to ignore prejudice but remember that with help and support you will get better. Ignorance may be life long.

UndertheCedartree Wed 10-Jun-20 18:17:28

@Microwaveoven, @Beerincomechampagnetastes @Cheeeeislifenow - thank you!
Good to see mental health stigma well and alive! sad

UndertheCedartree Wed 10-Jun-20 18:20:18

@PintofBovril - thank you!

Coronavirus: Single people can stay the night with loved ones, PM says www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52998806

@ACautionaryTale

"if your an inpatient in a psychiatric hospital I wouldn’t want you making such decisions full stop".
Your response is very ignorant.

The OP is in hospital, receiving treated and clearly her doctor has said she can go for home leave visits when the Govt relaxes the lockdown measures. Why would you think she isn't allowed to make decisions about home leave once the Govt have said mixing households is okay?

People go into psychiatric hospitals and receive treatment and are discharged to their homes in the same way that people go into hospitals for their physical health.

Mental ill-health can be a short temporary situation, a life-long situation or a recurring situation. Some people may experience a psychotic episode, get treated and have good mental health for the rest of their lives. People admitted to psychiatric units aren't all axe-wielding maniacs who are a danger to society. Most aren't. They may be a danger to themselves at a particular point in time from which they have got better. Everyone is different.
