STOP PRESS (16/7/21): Legislation has been introduced to initiate Step 4 of the Roadmap. The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps etc) (England) (Revocation and Amendment) Regulations 2021, SI 2021/848, which come into effect at 11.55 on 18 July 2021 revoke various regulations including in relation to limitations on the numbers of people gathering indoors and outdoors, social distancing, the wearing of face coverings and collecting contact details. See: LNB News 16/07/2021 22.
STOP PRESS (15/7/21): The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) published Working safely during coronavirus: guidance from Step 4 on 14 July 2021. The previous 14 guides have been condensed into six new guides that will apply from 19 July. These reflect that all businesses can open and the government is no longer instructing people to work from home, social distancing will no longer apply (although employers should mitigate the risk by reducing the number of people workers come into contact with) and face coverings are no longer required by law, but employers should encourage their use in enclosed and crowded spaces. See: LNB News 15/07/2021 115.
