The "Rule of 6" vs room hire and events



New Member
We've recently opened a new retail store, which comes with an upstairs room.

We intend to a) Hire the room out as a whole to groups of people to use, b) hire tables in the room out to individuals or small groups, and c) run events in the room.

With the new "rule of 6", not to mention the general social distancing rules, would it be possible to use the room for any or all of the above with the right precautions? eg. Would we be limited to a single group of 6? Would 3 couples be ok? Could we have 12 if the 2 groups remained separated at different ends of the room?
