The council recently published a new draft local COVID-19 Outbreak Management Plan for Haringey, which outlines how the council will work with agencies and other parts of the public health system to prevent and manage any local outbreaks of COVID-19.
From 4 July, gatherings of more than 30 people will be permitted, but only in certain public places as set out in law.
This will include places of worship and their surrounding premises in a church, mosque, synagogue, temple or other place of worship where you can independently pray or hold a religious ceremony. There are however activities where it is advisable to restrict numbers to 30 within a place of worship for public health reasons.
The government have set out guidance for those activities as well as how to ensure your place of worship is COVID-19 secure - visit GOV.UK (external link) for all the information you need.
Whilst engaging in an activity in the place of worship or surrounding grounds, all parties should adhere to social distancing guidelines. From 4 July, 2 meters or 1 metre with risk mitigation (where 2 metres is not viable) between households are acceptable.
There are also new rules surrounding weddings and civil partnerships that will be allowed to take place from 4 July.
Gatherings of more than 30 people will be permitted but only in certain public places as set out in law. This will include all licensed venues where legal marriage ceremonies can take place however it is strongly advised that numbers are restricted to 30 for public health reasons.

Yesterday the council published a new draft local COVID-19 Outbreak Management Plan for Haringey, which outlines how the council will work with agencies and other parts of the public health system to prevent and manage any local outbreaks of COVID-19.
The plan also seeks to understand the wider impact of COVID-19 on local communities, as well as provide a local infrastructure and oversight on outbreak prevention, which will then link into national programmes and neighbouring areas.
Priority areas include the local testing capacity, engaging with Haringey’s Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic communities, and supporting people to self-isolate.
