Read More What are the Covid rules from 17 May? How lockdown is easing and what you can do under the roadmap’s next step When does the Rule of Six apply indoors?Crucially, step three of the lockdown roadmap includes the introduction of the Rule of Six for indoor social gatherings. This applies to both private domestic settings and in hospitality settings (so you can go to the pub in a group of six).It also means that overnight stays will be allowed, which means mixed groups can go on holiday together, rather than the household-only rules currently in place.In simple terms the Rule of Six, as the name suggests, means that up to six people from any number of different households are allowed to meet.The measures were introduced for all outdoor settings from 29 March, including private gardens.However, in a critical distinction, the new version of the rule has been broadened to encompass two households, rather than a blanket ban of groups larger than six – this also applies to indoor groups.This decision, the Government explains, “provides greater flexibility, recognising the different situations faced by families and individuals”.

.Speaking the day before the Prime Minister’s announcement, Cabinet Minister Michael Gove told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “Without prejudice to a broader review of social distancing, it is the case that friendly contact, intimate contact, between friends and family is something we want to see restored.”Additionally, the limits on outdoor socialising are set to be drastically increased, with the rule of six giving way to maximum groups of 30 people.What are the other changes on 17 May?The other details of lockdown easing are expected to follow the Government’s roadmap announced back in February, albeit with the addition of the new guidance on hugging. Here are the key changes coming into effect on 17 May:Reopening indoors: Cinemas, outdoor theatres, hospitality, soft play areas, all remaining accommodation, and indoor sports will reopen. This will allow for overnight stays with people not in your household or bubble and will mean customers can sit indoors in hospitality venues.Crowds returning: Performances and sporting events indoors will reopen but with a capacity of no more than 1,000 people or half-full – whichever is lower. Outdoor venues, such as stadiums, will reopen with a capacity of 4,000 people or half-full and, in larger venues where crowds can spread out, up to 10,000 people or a quarter of capacity will be allowed.Travel: People will be able to travel abroad to green list countries without having to quarantine on their return, and to amber list countries with quarantine.Family events: Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, receptions, funerals and wakes. Other life events will be permitted such as bar mitzvahs and christenings.Masks: Evidence is being reviewed around whether mask wearing in schools could be scrapped.
