How lockdown restrictions are being eased across the UK

Up to 30 people can meet outdoors as restrictions in Wales continue to be relaxed from Monday.

The Welsh government said the country will gradually move to alert level one from June 7th to allow large outdoor events to resume.

Here’s how the restrictions will be eased in the four nations of the United Kingdom:

What’s happening in Wales?

Groups of up to 30 people can meet outdoors, including in private gardens, while from June 7th up to three households can meet indoors.

Larger organized events such as concerts, football matches and sporting activities are resumed with up to 4,000 standing and 10,000 seats.

The gradual easing of coronavirus measures will be reviewed before June 21st to see if indoor events can resume.

Live performances are already allowed in hospitality locations, but are still subject to strict public health requirements.

Groups are currently limited to up to six people from six households, while a distance of two meters is required for the audience and also for the performers “as far as practicable”.

Wales moved to Level 2 Alert on May 17th with the reopening of indoor hospitality and entertainment venues.

The reopening of the back office for pubs, restaurants, bars and cafes as well as entertainment venues such as cinemas went hand in hand with the fact that up to 30 people can participate in organized events indoors and up to 50 people in organized events outdoors.

Up to 30 people are allowed at weddings, and the limit on the number of mourners attending funerals has been removed in line with the safe capacity of the venue.

Secondary school students no longer need to wear face masks in class and community areas, and university students could return to campus for face-to-face lectures.

The restriction on “staying in the UK” has also been lifted for people who can travel to “Green List” countries without quarantine, provided they take a test upon arrival.

What’s happening in Scotland?

Plans to relax lockdown restrictions across much of Scotland have been suspended, but rules in Glasgow are due to be relaxed from Saturday.

Glasgow, which has been subject to the strictest restrictions in Scotland, will see some easing of the rules as the city moves to Level 2 on June 5th.

On that day, many island wards will move to Level 0 – the lowest level under Scotland’s five-tier system – while 15 wards will move down to Level 1.

Edinburgh, Dundee and Stirling are among the 13 municipal areas that will remain on Level 2 for the time being.

It was hoped that most of Scotland could move to Level 1.

The announcement means that companies in some areas, such as soft play centers, will not be able to reopen as planned.

What is happening in england

Scientists continue to debate whether the government should push the final phase of easing social restrictions later this month.

Downing Street has indicated that Prime Minister Boris Johnson still sees nothing in the data, suggesting the plan to end all legal lockdown restrictions on June 21 must be postponed.

May people in England can meet in groups of up to 30 people outdoors and in groups of six or two households indoors.

Pubs and restaurants can serve customers indoors, but are limited to table service.

Other leisure facilities such as cinemas, museums, theaters and concert halls were also allowed to reopen, although there are capacity limits for major events.

Up to 30 people are allowed at weddings, and the limit on the number of mourners attending funerals has been removed in line with the safe capacity of the venue.

Secondary school students no longer need to wear face masks in class and community areas, and university students could return to campus for face-to-face lectures.

The “stay in the UK” restriction has also been lifted, allowing people without quarantine to travel to Green List countries provided they take a test upon arrival.

What’s the latest in Northern Ireland?

Restaurants, cafes, bars and other eateries in Northern Ireland can operate indoors, with six people from unlimited households being allowed to sit together with table service only.

Six people from a maximum of two households can also meet and spend the night in private houses.

All tourist accommodation and indoor visitor attractions such as amusement arcades, bingo halls, museums, galleries and cinemas can also reopen.

The limit on the size of outdoor gatherings, including the number of spectators who can attend sporting events, will be increased to 500.

Schools may resume extracurricular activities, extracurricular indoor sports, cross-school outdoor sports, and educational visits.

Non-essential travel is allowed in the rest of the UK and there is a traffic light system for international travel.
