All restrictions in England, introduced against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic, can be lifted by June 21, depending on the situation, RIA Novosti reports.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said this on Monday during his speech in parliament.
According to him, if all the conditions for lifting the restrictions are met, mass sports events in the country will be able to take place in the summer. The first phase of lifting the restrictions will begin on March 8 with the opening of schools and permission to meet in the open with one stranger.
Golf clubs, tennis courts will open in England from March 29, and outdoor sports will be allowed. On April 12, non-food shops, beauty salons, restaurant terraces, museums, libraries and zoos will be able to open in the country.
Pubs, restaurants, cinemas and hotels in England are slated to open from 17 May. At the same time, families will be allowed to meet on the premises.
Earlier, Boris Johnson also named four conditions necessary for the gradual lifting of the restrictions in force in the country. He also noted that the United Kingdom authorities will not introduce COVID passports in the country for the vaccinated.
The UK plans to resume full-fledged air traffic with other countries no earlier than mid-May.
