Next step of roadmap out of lockdown to take effect from 17 May

10 May 2021

From 17 May, indoor hospitality businesses are permitted to re-open and households will be allowed to mix as the next step of the government's roadmap out of the latest coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown takes effect.

Under the next stage of the government's roadmap for lifting England's lockdown, pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues are set to be permitted to re-open indoors.

People will be able to meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors, while six people or two households can meet indoors. Individuals are also likely to be allowed to stay overnight with those not in their household or support bubble.

Commenting on the changes, John Foster, Director of Policy at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), said: 'It's encouraging to see the roadmap remains on track, with the certainty it's provided businesses so far already appearing evident in recent economic data. All firms should be commended for their continuing efforts in keeping staff and customers safe.

'The government can inject further momentum into the economic recovery by providing companies with clarity on outstanding issues, including social distancing, COVID status certificates and the future of workplace testing beyond June 21.

'Getting answers will help business cement the gains so far, laying strong foundations for the recovery and supporting the planned full re-opening of the economy without delay.'
