Lockdown extended to July 19

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last night that Step 4 of England’s roadmap out of lockdown has been pushed back to Monday, July 19.

The government had hoped to remove all legal restrictions on social contact from Monday, June 21.

A review will take place in two weeks.

However, a few restrictions are being lifted:

  • Weddings will no longer be limited to 30 guests.
  • Care home residents will not necessarily have to self-isolate after leaving their care homes.
  • Children can go on overnight trips in groups of 30.
  • Also, large events pilots will continue, including more Euro 2020 games and a number of other sports, arts, and music events.

Rules and lockdown restrictions vary from nation to nation, with differing dates as to when lockdown will be eased.
