The full construction sector will be allowed back on May 4th.

June will see the return of hotels, B&Bs, restaurants and pubs on a phased basis around the bank holiday weekend.

Cinemas will also be allowed to open from June 7th.

Matches at non-elite level without supporters will be permitted again from the 7th of June.

Also on that date, gyms and swimming pools will be allowed to re-open.

The government is banking on the vaccine roll-out also ramping up in that time to allow everything opened to stay open.
