Coronavirus: Children can visit separated parents during restrictions

_111405440_jude

Children of parents who are separated are able to move between households during the coronavirus restrictions, minister Michael Gove has said.

Some parents were worried they would not be able to see their children if they do not live with them full-time.

He initially suggested children should not be travelling between different houses during the restrictions.

But he later back-tracked and apologised for being unclear, saying it "may be necessary" for some to move.

Boris Johnson announced on Monday that the government was bringing in strict new measures to tackle the spread of the coronavirus.

He said people should leave home for only a few clear reasons – exercise once a day; absolutely necessary travel to and from work; essential shopping; and medical or care needs.

That left some parents, whose children split their time between households, with questions, and further confused when Mr Gove told Good Morning Britain that children should not be moved.

The government guidance says: "Where parents do not live in the same household, children under 18 can be moved between their parents' homes."

Jude Clay, 37, who runs single parenting blog Gluing Cheese, has a four-year-old son with her former partner.

He splits his time equally between both parents and was with his dad when Boris Johnson addressed the nation.
