Clear as mud

I am rarely stuck for inspiration when putting together a quiz, but it always helps to receive suggestions.  I would therefore like to thank HM Government for its world-class commitment to providing topics for rounds as reflected in this week’s quiz.

You will be pleased to know that there will be no questions on the current High level of Covid restrictions in the North East. As part of our public service remit, however, remember that at the present time:

  • You can’t socialise outside of your household or support bubble
  • except in a garden or outdoor space at which time the maximum number meeting is six, including children of all ages
  • but you can meet in a group of more than six if certain exceptions apply, including: in a legally permitted support bubble; in a legally permitted childcare bubble; for work, volunteering to provide voluntary or charitable services; for registered childcare, education or training; for arrangements where children do not live in the same household as both their parents or guardians; for prospective adopting parents to meet a child or children who may be placed with them; for supervised activities provided for children, including wraparound care (before and after school childcare), youth groups and activities, and children’s playgroups; for birth partners; to provide emergency assistance, and to avoid injury or illness, or to escape a risk of harm; to fulfil a legal obligation, such as attending court or jury service; to provide care or assistance to someone vulnerable; to facilitate a house move; for a wedding or equivalent ceremony and wedding receptions where the organiser has carried out a risk assessment and taken all reasonable measures to limit the risk of transmission of the virus – up to a maximum of 15 people (not to take place in private dwellings); for funerals – up to a maximum of 30 people; wakes and other commemorative events are permitted with up to 15 people present (not to take place in private dwellings); for elite sportspeople and their coaches if necessary for competition and training, as well as parents or guardians if they are a child; for outdoor exercise and dance classes, organised outdoor sport and licensed outdoor physical activity; for indoor organised sport for disabled people, sport for educational purposes and supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s;support groups of up to 15 participants – formally organised groups to provide mutual aid, therapy or any other form of support (not to take place in private dwellings); and protests – if organised in compliance with guidance.

Subject to the above and so long as there is no unauthorised mingling or canoodling, you are free to have as many people in your online Quiz team as you want.

Best of luck
