England remains in Step 3

England remains in Step 3

The government has announced a 4-week pause at Step 3. Step 3 restrictions remain in place, and you should follow the guidance, which explains what you can and cannot do.

It is expected that England will move to Step 4 on 19 July, though the data will be reviewed after 2 weeks in case the risks have reduced. The government will continue to monitor the data and the move to Step 4 will be confirmed one week in advance.

However, some restrictions will change on 21 June:

  • weddings and civil partnership ceremonies and wedding receptions or civil partnership celebrations can be attended by as many people as social distancing allows at the venue
  • out-of-school groups, such as Brownies, Scouts and Duke of Edinburgh, will now be able to have overnight trips in groups of up to 30 children
  • care home residents will no longer need to isolate for 14 days after visits outside, except after overnight hospital stays and visits classed as high risk by the care home
  • a limited series of pilot events will take place to produce additional evidence on reopening events safely such as UEFA EURO 2020 matches at Wembley and a small number of other sports, arts and music performances
