Step 3 -
Further easing of restrictions next week
Step 3 easements will go ahead from Monday 17 May. Up to six people or two households will be able to meet indoors. Overnight stays will also be allowed and groups of up to 30 people may meet outdoors.
Hospitality venues, including pubs and restaurants, will be allowed to open indoors for groups of six.
Indoor entertainment venues like cinemas and theatres will be allowed to open.
Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, funerals, and wakes.
Care home residents will be able to have up to five named visitors, with two visitors able to attend at once provided they are tested and follow infection control measures. Residents will also have greater freedom to leave their home without having to isolate on their return. Visit gov.uk for further guidance.
Residents are reminded to continue following the guidance. Please wash your hands regularly, keep your distance from others and wear a face covering where necessary. Making sure indoor spaces are well ventilated also helps reduce the spread.
