As per the PM’s statement, the government is satisfied that all five tests are still being met and we can proceed with the following further adjustments to the lockdown in England.
As confirmed by the Business Secretary earlier this week, shops in England selling non-essential goods will be able to reopen from Monday 15 June. Full details of workplace guidance here: https://bit.ly/CV19WorkingSafely.
From this weekend, single adult households – adults living alone or single parents with children under 18 – are allowed to form a “support bubble” with one other household. Guidance found here: https://bit.ly/SupportBubbleNor
The risk of transmission is lower outdoors; from Monday, outdoor attractions where people can stay in their cars, such as safari parks and drive-in cinemas will be allowed to open.
Finally, places of worship will open for individual prayer this weekend.
As set out in the government’s roadmap, the next set of changes – Step 3 – will not begin until 4 July at the earliest, as the evidence allows.
