The government has announced a four-week pause at step three.

Boris Johnson has confirmed that Nottingham will remain at step 3 of the roadmap for the next four weeks.

It is expected that England will move to step 4 from 19 July with data being reviewed after 2 weeks in case the risks have reduced.

The move to step 4 will be confirmed one week in advance.

Some restrictions will still change on 21 June. From 21 June, there will be changes to the rules on:

  • Weddings and civil partnership ceremonies and wedding receptions or civil partnership celebrations
  • Commemorative events following a death such as a wake, stone setting or ash scattering
  • Large events pilots
  • Care home visits
  • Domestic residential visits for children

Weddings and civil partnership ceremonies and wedding receptions or civil partnership celebrations:

The number of people who can attend these events in a COVID-Secure venue or other venue (such as a garden of a private home) will be determined by how many people a venue can safely accommodate with social distancing measures in place, including guests of all ages and anyone working at the event.

For those organising weddings in gardens of private homes or on private land, you will need to make your chosen venue as safe as possible.

If you plan on having more than 30 people, you must complete a COVID-19 risk assessment to determine how many attendees will be able to attend, and follow Government guidance to make the event as safe as possible.

Large events pilots from 21 June

A limited series of pilot events will take place to produce additional evidence on reopening events safely. Attendees will need to show proof of vaccination or a recent negative test.

Care home visits from 21 June

For visits in to care homes, all care home residents will be able to nominate an essential care giver.

These essential care givers will be able to visit the care home resident, even if the resident is isolating.

Face coverings

You must wear a face covering in many indoor settings, such as shops and places of worship, and on public transport, unless you are exempt or have a reasonable excuse.

Meeting family and friends outdoors

You should continue to minimise the number of people you meet within a short period of time to limit the risk of spreading coronavirus (COVID-19).

Meeting friends and family indoors (rule of 6)

It is safer to meet people outdoors. This is because COVID-19 spreads much more easily indoors.

However, you can meet up indoors with friends and family you do not live with, either:

  • In a group of up to 6 from any number of households (children of all ages count towards the limit of 6)
  • In a group of any size from up to two households (each household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible)

Booking vaccine

All adults aged over 18 will be able to book their Covid vaccination by the end of this week, the head of the NHS in England has said.
