As you may be aware yesterday (14th June) Prime Minister Boris Johnson that most current measures will remain in place.
The limit on wedding guests will be removed from 21st June but social distancing rules must be adhered to.
We have decided our office will remain closed to the public for the next 4 weeks (Except by appointment)
Boris Johnson said if the country went ahead with the stage 4 unlocking it would mean there was “a real possibility” of the virus outrunning the vaccine leading to thousands more deaths. The delay would give the NHS “a few more crucial weeks” to get people vaccinated.
Extra testing facilities and access to vaccines will be rolled out in more areas of the country, and vaccines for 23-24 year old’s will open up from 15th June.

WHAT IS CHANGINF FROM 21st JUNE?
- The number of wedding guests will no longer be limited to 30
- But venues must adhere to social distancing
- Table service is required – with 6 people per table and no indoor dancefloor allowed
- Care home residents will no longer have to isolate for 14 days after returning from an outside visit, except high risk visits such as overnight hospital stays.
The delay means limits on how many people can meet, groups of up to 30 can meet outside and up to 6 people or 2 households can meet indoors.
Capacity limits will continue at other venues such as Stadia and nightclubs will remain closed.
Additional support is being introduced to Warrington, Chesire East, Cheshire West and Chester, Liverpool City Region, Blackpool and Birmingham.
The support is the same as what was announced for Greater Manchester and Lancashire last week, following a spike in cases of the Delta variant.
Local authorities will be given additional resources, military aid, to help with delivering tests and there will be support for supervised in school testing and surge testing.
As part of the Government guidance, residents are encouraged to get tested twice a week, minimise travel in and out of affected areas, avoid indoor meetings and continue to work from home where possible.
Support available to local areas will include:
- Additional resources to help local authorities with testing, logistics, planning and workforce to assist with testing, door-to-door visits to engage with residents and other activities. These may come from the Surge Rapid Response Teams, from military aid or other sources depending on requirements.
- Wastewater testing samples being prioritised for sequencing.
- Specialist communications support to increase awareness and focus engagement with disadvantaged groups.
- Maximising vaccine uptake by expanding existing channels, developing new capacity and increasing local and targeted communications to reach different communities.
- Supervised in-school testing and discretion to reintroduce face coverings in indoor communal areas and classrooms in schools if they and directors of public health decide it is appropriate.
- Surge testing and enhanced contact tracing.
