The BBC today quoted government sources saying that most coronavirus decrees will remain in place in England for another four weeks after the planned 21 June unlocking.

Senior ministers signed the decision to delay lifting all “legal restrictions on social contact.”

This may mean capacity limits for sports, pubs, and cinemas will remain, while nightclubs would stay closed.

The extension will be put to a Commons vote this month.

England was due to move to stage four of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown on 21 June, when venues and events would be allowed to operate without capacity limits and the cap on guests at weddings would be lifted.
