Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a series of measures to take effect from 4 July, easing the lockdown in England.
The prime minister said that where it is not possible to stay 2m apart, people should keep a distance of “one metre plus” – this means staying one metre apart, while observing precautions to reduce the risk of transmission.
All hospitality indoors will be table service only, and contact between staff and customers will be limited. Customers will also have to give contact details when they enter a pub or restaurant.
Holiday accommodation – including hotels, B&Bs, cottages, campsites and caravan parks – can also reopen, and people in England will be free to stay away from home overnight for the first time since lockdown began in March. But shared facilities – campsite toilets, for instance – must be cleaned properly.
3.Meeting other households
In England, two households of any size will be able to meet indoors or outside. It will be possible to stay overnight.- the prime minister said. “It will be possible for instance to meet one set of grandparents one weekend, and the others the following weekend.” In addition, the two households would have to maintain social distancing – unless they were part of the same support bubble.
Outdoors, people from multiple households can meet in groups of up to six – but two households can meet regardless of size.
What else will reopen in England?
- More outdoor spaces will open if they can do so safely, including outdoor gyms and children’s playgrounds
- Hairdressers will be able to reopen, as long as they take precautions. Other close-contact services such as nail bars will not yet open, but the prime minister said they would be able to open “as soon as we’re confident they can operate safely”
- Libraries, community centres, bingo halls, cinemas, museums and galleries will be able to open, along with funfairs and theme parks, amusement arcades, outdoor skating rinks, social clubs and model villages
- Places of worship will be able to open for prayers and services, including weddings with up to 30 guests – subject to social distancing. Singing will not be permitted
