From 6th July, those currently shielding will be able to:
✅ Meet in groups of up to six people outdoors
✅ Form a 'support bubble' with another household
From 1st August, shielding ends in England.
Commenting, Robert said: "Thank you to everyone who has shielded themselves for so long: I know it has been profoundly difficult. The sacrifice has been for a purpose and the measures have been vital in saving lives.
"Now, with infection rates continuing to fall in our communities, our medical experts are advising that we can begin to ease some of these measures while keeping people safe."
