Britain is on path to ditch the Covid-19 social distancing rule requiring people to stay at least one metre apart towards the end of next month, prime minister Boris Johnson said.
Johnson’s government has set out a roadmap to end lockdown restrictions in stages as widespread vaccinations help to suppress Covid-19 infections.
June 21st has been set as a date when social distancing could end.
Johnson said, “I think we’ve got a good chance, a good chance, of being able to dispense with one-metre plus.”
Abolishing the social distancing rule will be critical to those in the hospitality and social sectors.
