It’s stage three of the road map to reopening – and it’s a biggie.
Here are all the things we can do from today (Monday, 17 May):
People can meet outdoors in groups of up to 30, and indoors in groups of six, or two households.
Pubs and restaurants will be able to serve customers indoors, although they will be limited to table service.
Other recreational venues such as cinemas, museums, theatres and concert halls will be allowed to reopen. although there will be capacity limits on large events.
Up to 30 people will be allowed at weddings, although dancing will still not be allowed, and the cap on the number of mourners attending funerals will be lifted, in line with the safe capacity of the venue.
Secondary school pupils will no longer be told to wear face masks in class and communal areas, and university students will return to campus for in-person lectures.
The “stay in the UK” restriction will lift and people will be able to travel to “green list” countries without having to quarantine, provided they take one post-arrival test.
