Boris Johnson ditches 2m social distancing rule for '1m-plus' in England

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53152416

Pubs, restaurants, hotels and hairdressers can open from 4 July in England, when social distancing rules will be eased. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said people should remain 2m apart where possible but a "one metre plus" rule will be introduced. Two households in England will also be able to meet indoors and stay overnight - with social distancing.

The venues listed as being able to reopen include:

- Pubs, bars and restaurants - but only with a table service indoors, and owners will be asked to keep contact details of customers to help with contact tracing

- Hotels, holiday apartments, campsites and caravan parks - but shared facilities must be cleaned properly

- Theatres and music halls - but they will not be allowed to hold live performances

- In other changes weddings will be allowed to have 30 attendees, and places of worship will be allowed to hold services

- Hair salons and barbers will be able to reopen but must put protective measures, such as visors, in place
