Step Three of the roadmap out of lockdown comes into effect on Monday May 17.
Most legal restrictions on meeting others outdoors will be lifted, although gatherings will be limited to 30 people.
People are now able to mix indoors with others, with the Rule of Six or two household limit in place.
Most businesses will be able to re-open, except for those in the highest-risk sectors. Hospitality venues will be allowed to serve customers indoors, though visitors will have to remain seated with table service only in operation.
Other settings such as indoor entertainment venues (cinemas, children’s play areas etc) are able to reopen, as are remaining accommodation settings not permitted to open in Step Two (hotels, B&Bs).
