• Consistent with Phase 2, accommodation can be provided for those required to stay away from home for work purposes.
From Monday 29th June:
• Indoor (non-office) workplaces resume once relevant guidance is implemented.
o Includes: factories, warehouses, labs and research facilities.
o Excludes: indoor workplaces due to open in Phase 3 (e.g. non-essential offices and call-centres).
• Street-access retail can re-open once guidance is implemented. Interiors of shopping centres / malls remain closed for non-essential shops until Phase 3.
• Outdoor markets can re-open once guidance is implemented.
• Relaxation on restrictions on housing moves.

Unfortunately, outdoor cafes, beer gardens and other hospitality businesses are not able to reopen yet. This will be reviewed on 2nd July once the scientific evidence has been supplied.
