UIN HL14242, tabled on 15 March 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether children under the age of 11 are permitted (1) to move between households to visit their parents, and (2) to attend school, within 10 days of arriving in England from any country not included among the COVID-19 'red list' countries from which entry to the UK is banned.

Children are not permitted to move between households to visit parents or attend school within the quarantine period. When someone arrives in England, they must travel directly to the place they are staying and not leave until 10 days have passed. It is the responsibility of the person who has custody or charge of the child to ensure they comply with the regulations.
