Any remaining outdoor entertainment can reopen, such as outdoor cinemas and shows. Some larger events may take place, including conferences, theater and concert performances, and sporting events. The restrictions on the number of participants will remain as defined in the roadmap.
Tips for meeting family and friends will be updated. The public can make informed personal decisions about close contact, such as cuddling, with friends and family.

Covid’s safety rules remain for the workplace and businesses, such as in shops and hotels.
