What are the Rules on going to a Funeral in Tier 3

Small Funeral Services

The latest wave of restrictions acknowledge that families will more than likely want to continue to attend the funeral of a loved one. However, the new government guidelines states that you can have up to 30 people attending the service, but the number is limited to the amount of people seating inside the church.

All funerals can take place indoors as normal, but with a limited number of people and COVID-secure, such as hand-sanitizer stations, 2-meter signs visible across the indoor-settings, and face coverings worn at all times.
