  • Groups of up to 30 are able to meet outdoors, though caution is advised in terms of forms of close contact, such as hugging.
  • 2 households or up to 6 people are now able to meet indoors.
  • Pubs, cafes and restaurants can now serve customers indoors.
  • Entertainments establishments such as cinemas, stadiums, museums and theatres are now able to reopen and welcome visitors in limited capacity.
  • Organised exercise classes and sports can now take place in an indoor setting.
  • Hotels and other hospitality establishments can now welcome guests.
