Plans for Reopening Further
Cabinet has agreed to the approach to the next review cycle from 22 April, subject to the public health situation remaining favourable.
From Monday 26 April:
- Outdoor attractions, including funfairs and theme parks, will be allowed to reopen.
- Outdoor hospitality can resume, including at cafes, pubs and restaurants. Indoor hospitality will remain closed except for takeaways.
From Monday 3 May:
- Organised outdoor activities for adults for up to 30 people can again take place.
- Weddings receptions can take place outdoors, but will also be limited to 30 people.
From Monday 10 May:
- Gyms, fitness facilities, leisure centres and swimming pools can reopen. This will include individual or one-to-one training, but not group exercise classes.
- Extended household will be considered (an exclusive bubble of allow two households who can meet and have contact indoors)
The next review after those changes will take place on 14 May.
Preparations will be made to allow an incoming government to consider further easements, including organised indoor activities, exercise classes, the reopening of community centres and the potential reopening of all accommodation and indoor hospitality, in order for them to be open before the Whitsun bank holiday at the end of May.
