Updated 19th August
Updated to reflect changes in rules on wearing face coverings.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Friday 17 July, more businesses and venues are due to reopen from 25 July and 1 August (if prevalence remains around or below current levels), accompanied by COVID-19 Secure guidance. This will not include particularly high-risk activities and settings, such as nightclubs. These remaining restrictions will be kept under review.
All businesses and venues which are listed to reopen on 25 July or 1 August must remain closed until those dates.
The staying alert guidance (opens in a new tab)sets out more detail on other steps that do not directly relate to the reopening of businesses and venues, such as changes to guidance on live performances and piloting of spectators at live sport events.
See Section 3 for businesses and venues which will need to remain closed after 1 August.
