On the second day, new regulations came into force in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Nightclubs are closed, distance requirements are introduced and the number of visitors to bars is low, according to Sky News.
However, the restrictions introduced in the UK due to the spread of the Omigron variant do not apply in the UK – where the political government has chosen to discuss possible measures only after the end of the Christmas weekend.
In Scotland, residents are encouraged to keep a distance of at least one meter from each other during major events, and a maximum of 100 people are allowed to participate in public indoor events. For seating events, a ceiling of up to 200 people applies.
In Wales, the number of participants is still limited, with a maximum of 30 people allowed for indoor events and 50 for outdoor events.
Northern Ireland bans all indoor events. From Monday, a maximum of six people in the same company – or ten people from the same household – will be allowed in pubs, cafes and restaurants. Also, it is recommended that Northern Irish people limit their community meetings to a maximum of three houses.
Fixed: An earlier version of the text misinterpreted the restrictions in Northern Ireland.
