Updated Relaxed Corona Regulations from 1 July 2020

From 1 July: staying 1.5 metres apart remains the norm

We can now take another step forward in our approach to tackling coronavirus.  A new phase is beginning and we are moving from an intelligent lockdown to less restrictive rules. General rules still apply, because coronavirus has not gone away.

We have come this far because people have followed the basic rules, which will continue to apply:

  • If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.
  • Stay 1.5 metres away from other people.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Work from home if possible.
  • Avoid busy places and travel outside peak hours if possible.

This approach is working. The peak of infections is now behind us, and we have the virus under control. We are now able to offer widespread testing and conduct intensive source and contact tracing. As a result, we are capable of taking targeted action when flare-ups occur and preventing the further spread of the virus.

Keep your distance: give others enough space

It is now vital that we remain alert and vigilant. Anyone who has symptoms should get tested and stay at home. That is the only way to keep the freedom we have all worked hard to regain. From 1 July the following general rules will apply. The rules are based on what we now know about how the virus spreads.

General rules indoors:

  • Stay 1.5 metres away from others.
  • The maximum number of people in one space is limited to 100 (not counting staff). Everyone must have their own seat.
  • No maximum number of people applies if they have their own seat, have made reservations and have undergone a pre-entry health check.
  • In shops, museums, libraries and other settings where visitors move through the space, the rule is that people must stay 1.5 metres apart. It is up to locations to make sure people follow this rule. Here, no maximum number of people applies.

General rules outdoors:

  • Stay 1.5 metres away from others.
  • No more than 250 people (not counting staff) can be present.
    • In outdoor seating areas at restaurants, caf├ęs and bars guests must have their own seat.
  • No maximum number of people applies if they have their own seat, have made reservations and have undergone a pre-entry health check.
  • At zoos, theme parks and other outdoor locations where visitors move through the space, the rule is that people must stay 1.5 metres apart. It is up to locations to make sure people follow this rule. Here, no maximum number of people applies.
