COVID Restrictions easing from 17 May

The government has announced that coronavirus restrictions will be easing further thanks to the success of the vaccine programme and the national efforts to keep to restrictions.

From Monday 17 May, some restrictions will be cautiously lifted in Step 3 of the roadmap:

  • There will be new guidance on meeting family and friends, including social distancing rules in these situations, and being able to meet 6 people or 2 households indoors, and up to 30 people outdoors
  • Indoor entertainment and hospitality venues can reopen, such as pubs and restaurants, cinemas, theatres, and indoor play areas
  • Hostels, hotels, and B&Bs can reopen
  • All remaining university students will be able to return to in-person teaching
  • The number of named visitors for those in care homes will increase from 2 to 5
  • Some international travel will be allowed.

You should continue to follow social distancing when not with friends and family including in workplaces, shops, pubs and restaurants and other public settings. So please remember hands, face, space, and fresh air.
