UK NEWS: England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland aim to reduce COVID rules for Christmas

LONDON – The British government said on Sunday it had been working with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to reduce barriers to COVID-19 over Christmas so that families could reunite.

Cabinet Minister Michael Gove discussed the matter with the first ministers of the private sector on Saturday, the government said, and agreed that it was important for families and friends to meet in a careful and limited manner, while noting that it would not be a regular celebration.

“Therefore, the ministers have acknowledged the shared purpose of assisting the outbreak of certain families for a few days, but also stressed that the public will be advised to remain vigilant, and where possible people to avoid travel and reduce contact,” he said.

Finance Minister Minster Rishi Sunak previously said on Sunday the British would not be able to enjoy a regular Christmas this year, but the government was looking at ways to make it possible for families to reunite.

“It’s as worrying as it has been for all of us, Christmas is not going to be the norm this year,” he told Sky’s Sophie Ridge on Sunday.
