PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Hugs with family and holidays abroad could be permitted this month as step three of the government's roadmap out of lockdown approaches. The next stage of easing restrictions could come as soon as May 17, according to the government's roadmap out of lockdown, and is expected to see the return of larger social gatherings and further sectors of the economy unlocked. Step three will commence at least five weeks after step two, which saw the reopening of non-essential shops and outdoor hospitality on April 12, and will follow a further review of the data and the four tests. The next step will see all but the most high-risk sectors reopen their doors, the government said. Step three will be followed by the final stage of lockdown easing, when all legal limits on social contact will be lifted - and businesses such as nightclubs will finally be allowed to open up - no earlier than June 21. Health secretary Matt Hancock told a government press briefing this week that "we are on track" to go ahead with the third stage of lockdown easing on May 17. Ministers have said they will give at least one week's notice of the changes. This is everything we expect from step three of the roadmap. Holidays abroad to resume The government is expected to make an announcement on the resumption of international leisure travel in the next week. Step three of the roadmap could see a ban on holidays abroad lifted on May 17, subject to a review by the Global Travel task force. The task force previously outlined a framework for the safe return of international travel, including a traffic light system for categorising restrictions based on risk. Different quarantine and testing restrictions will be required for travellers arriving from countries on green, amber and red lists. People returning from green destinations will not need to self-isolate and will only be asked to take one post-arrival test. The government said an announcement on which countries are on which lists, and confirmation that the travel ban can be lifted on May 17, will be made public in early May. Social distancing reviewed The government has said that it will update advice on social distancing between friends and family "as soon as possible", and "no later than step three". The Times has reported that hugging will be allowed between friends and family on May 17, regardless of whether everyone has had the vaccine or not.

Larger social gatherings will be allowed to take place outside at step three of the government's roadmap out of lockdown (Image: Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images) Restrictions on social gatherings eased again Most legal restrictions on meetings outdoors will be lifted at step three of the roadmap - but gatherings of over 30 people will still be banned. Indoors, people will be able to meet socially in a group of six, or with one other household - the same rules that currently apply for outdoor gatherings. The government has said it may be possible to go further on easing restrictions indoors, depending on the data. People will still be advised to meet up outdoors to minimise the risk of transmission where possible. Indoor hospitality and more businesses to reopen Further sectors of the economy will be unlocked at step three of the lockdown. Hospitality venues will be allowed to serve indoors as well as outdoors. All remaining outdoor entertainment venues, such as outdoor theatres and cinemas, will be allowed to open, as will remaining accommodation settings such as hotels, hostels and B&Bs.

Indoor exercise classes and activities will also be permitted. Large events with limited capacity Some large events, including conferences, theatre and concert performances and sports events, will be permitted at step three of the roadmap. Controlled indoor events of up to 1,000 people or 50 per cent of a venue’s capacity, whichever is lower, will be permitted, as will outdoor events with a capacity of either 50 per cent or 4,000 people, whichever is lower. The government will also make a special provision for large, outdoor, seated venues where crowds can be safely distributed, allowing up to 10,000 people or 25 per cent of total seated capacity, whichever is lower.

Changes to weddings, funerals and other life events At step three, weddings, receptions, funerals, and commemorative events including wakes will be allowed to go ahead with up to 30 attendees. A broader range of stand-alone life events will also be permitted at this step, including bar mitzvahs and christenings.
