Step 4, from 19th July most legal requirements lifted -
There will no longer be legal requirements to remain 2m form others, limiting numbers allowed to meet inside or outside, to wear face coverings inside, putting restrictions on events and hospitality, for COVID secure practices.
Legal requirements are still in place for contact with COVID positive individuals and foreign travel.
From 16th August if you are fully vaccinated, you will not need to self-isolate following close contact with someone who has COVID-19, but you will still need to take a PCR test and self-isolate if it is positive.
The pandemic is not over, people are still becoming seriously ill or dying from COVID-19
Even fully vaccinated people can still contract and transmit COVID-19.
If you have COVID symptoms you must avoid contact with others and get a test or medical advice.
We still need to reduce the risk to others and ourselves - many shops, public transport, venues, etc. may ask you to continue wearing a mask and socially distance. Think about meeting outdoors, increasing ventilation indoors, wearing a face covering in crowded areas, minimising the number proximity and duration of social contacts. Continue to wash or sanitise hands regularly and to clean surfaces touched by others.
NOTE Different rules apply in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
