We are pleased that from 3 December, places of worship can open for communal worship in all tiers, including tier 3. They must ensure that they are Covid-secure, taking account of the social distancing guidance. Marriage and Civil Partnership ceremonies are also permitted in places of worship in all tiers, with up to 15 people in attendance, as are funerals, with up to 30 people in attendance.
