May 17 is the next date people can take advantage of pared back Covid restrictions. In today’s Covid briefing, the Prime Minister expanded on what people can and can’t do next week. He touched on what the rules would mean for friends and families hoping to meet in groups.
How many people can meet outside from May 17?
The Prime Minister revealed people can meet, and even hug, as long as it is with “caution and restraint” next week.
From May 17, the Government will dispense with “most” legal restrictions on meeting in public, with differences both inside and outside.
But the number of people allowed to meet in a group will increase dramatically.
