July 2021

Following the government announcement of the 4-week pause to lifting lockdown, Step 3 restrictions remain in place. 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.

Some restrictions did change on 21 June, including care home visits. Further details can be found here (COVID-19) Coronavirus restrictions: what you can and cannot do - GOV.UK.
