Major parts of the economy permitted to reopen:

  • All shops allowed to open, along with close-contact services, including hairdressers and beauty salons (including in people's homes)
  • Restaurants and pubs allowed to serve food and alcohol to customers sitting outdoors
  • Gyms and spas can reopen, as can zoos, theme parks, libraries and community centres
  • Members of the same household can take a holiday in the UK in self-contained accommodation
  • Weddings attended by up to 15 people can take place

Wider social contact rules will continue to apply in all settings - meaning no indoor mixing between different households will be allowed.
