The 4 UK government administrations have issued guidelines in the next steps for coming out of lockdown.

England. Summary from government website at step 4 which are relevant to rallies, from the 19th of July. Most legal restrictions to control COVID-19 will be lifted at step 4. This means that when step 4 takes place:

  • You will not need to stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with. There will also be no limits on the number of people you can meet.
  • However, to minimise risk at a time of high prevalence, you should limit the close contact you have with those you do not usually live with and increase close contact gradually. This includes minimising the number, proximity, and duration of social contacts.
  • Meet outdoors where possible and let fresh air into homes or other enclosed spaces.
  • The requirement to wear face coverings in law will be lifted. However, the Government recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.
  • There will no longer be restrictions on group sizes for attending communal worship or on singing.
