Roadmap out of lockdown

The Government has published the 'Covid-19 Response - Spring 2021' setting out the roadmap out of the national lockdown.

This includes a four step plan for the reopening of venues and businesses.


Step 4 - from 19 July

The Government will move to Step 4 of the roadmap from 19 July 2021. All remaining closed venues such as nightclubs will be able to reopen. All capacity limits at sporting, entertainment or business events will be lifted. For further details view the Covid-19 Response - Summer 2021.

Pubs, restaurants and bars will no longer be required to provide table service or follow other social distancing rules. 

All businesses should follow the Government's working safely guidance. Steps should be taken to manage risks including:

  • cleaning surfaces that people touch regularly
  • identifying poorly ventilated areas in the venue and taking steps to improve air flow
  • ensuring that any staff and customers who are unwell do not attend the work place or venue
  • communicating to staff and customers the measures you have put in place

More information is available on the GOV.UK website section on Step 4.
