Should local authorities or other organisations wish to hold Remembrance Sunday events they should consult the relevant public health guidance on holding events during the pandemic and ensure appropriate licences are secured and that COVID-19 risk assessments are completed to ensure the risk of transmission is minimised.

The Government has published guidance for the safe use of Places of Worship, and for special religious services and gatherings during the pandemic. At Remembrance events inside places of worship or in public places there can be multiple groups of six people doing the same activity provided that these groups do not mingle.
