Other changes

· On 16 August, most Covid restrictions in schools - including "bubbles" - will come to an end, ahead of the autumn term.

The health secretary said:

  • People should meet others outside where possible

  • It is "expected and recommended" that people should wear face coverings (unless exempt) in crowded public settings such as public transport

Businesses such as nightclubs - and large events - will also be encouraged to use Covid-certification in "high risk settings".

People working from home will be encouraged to return to the workplace gradually.

A review will take place in September to assess how prepared the country is for autumn and winter.
