Changes to lockdown from 4th July

From the 4th July, the following businesses can open:

  • hotels, B&Bs, holiday apartments, cottages
  • campsites, caravan parks, boarding houses
  • places of worship
  • libraries and community centres
  • workplace cafes
  • bars, restaurants and pubs
  • cinemas and theatres (no live performances)
  • museums and galleries
  • hairdressers and barbers
  • outdoor gyms and playgrounds
  • adventure parks, fun fairs and amusement arcades
  • aquariums and zoos
  • social clubs and model villages

 

  • Up to six people can meet outside from a safe distance.
  • Single people can form a “support bubble” with one other household and act as if they live in the same household, without social distancing.
  • And from the 4th July two households will be able to meet up in any setting – keeping a social distance of at least one metre, plus mitigations which reduce the risk of transmission.

 

  • Those who have been asked to shield themselves can now safely spend time outside with members of their household or, if they live alone, with one other person.
  • From 6 July those shielding can gather in groups of up to six people outdoors and for those that live alone or are single parents, they will be able to form a ‘support bubble’ with another household, while maintaining social distancing.
  • And from 1 August people will no longer be advised to shield.
