Who should be in quarantine and isolation and how it should be carried out.
Events and social gatherings
Even though there are many restrictions, it is possible to get together both at home and outside of home for celebrations, occasions to be marked or if we want to gather for private events.
Some might wonder how many people can be together, how to go about serving food at private events and whether grandparents can spend time with their grandchildren.
