Children of separated parents allowed to visit both despite coronavirus lockdown guidelines


This morning, Michael Gove confirmed that children under 18 and with separated parents can visit both homes despite the government lockdown on movement during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

During the Prime Minister’s announcement last night, he stated that there was an immediate ban on visiting any household other than your own.

Co-parents were questioning the guidance and were seeking clarification. Further confusion arose when Michael Gove told ITV, “you should not be moving from home to home.”

He later admitted that he hadn’t been clear enough and that children under 18 can move between their parents homes.
