Latest information on what you can and cannot do.

The government has announced a four-week pause at Step 3 of the lockdown easing plan. It is expected that England will move to Step 4 on 19 July, though the data will be reviewed after 2 weeks in case the risks have reduced.

From 21 June, some restrictions will change:

  • The number of guests at weddings and wakes will no longer be limited to 30, but social distancing will still be required
  • Care home residents will no-longer have to isolate for 14 days after returning from visits outside. Exceptions will include high-risk trips such as overnight hospital stays

Read the full changes on the government website. All other rules, outlined below, will remain the same.

How the rules will change from 15/06/2021.
