Changes to July’s coronavirus rules

Here is a list of all of the confirmed changes to July’s coronavirus lockdown rules, including which places in England are permitted to reopen, and which are not.

Yesterday, it was announced that beauty salons are among those permitted to reopen as of Monday 13 July.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden confirmed that “other close contact services” would also be allowed to reopen from that date, with the exception of  facial treatments, including eyelashes.

Outdoor theatres have also been given a reopening dates, and will see a return on Saturday 11 July.

Outdoor swimming pools and water parks will be allowed to reopen from 11 July.

Changing rooms will be closed, so visitors will be expected to shower and change at home.

Organised team sports which take place outdoors are also permitted to return on 11 July.

No date has been set for indoor leisure activities such as children’s play areas, nightclubs or bowling alleys.

But, indoor gyms, dance studios and skating rinks will all be able to reopen later in the month.

They are expected to reopen sometime around 25 July.

It is thought that in line with social distancing guidelines, most of these places will operate with timed bookings.

Venues and businesses are expected to manage their own social distancing measures, and ensure that they are Covid-secure.

Face coverings are not legally mandatory, but are recommended.
