As part of Step 3, no earlier than 17 May, the government will look to continue easing limits on seeing friends and family wherever possible, allowing people to decide on the appropriate level of risk for their circumstances.

This means that most legal restrictions on meeting others outdoors will be lifted - although gatherings of over 30 people will remain illegal. Indoors, the Rule of 6 or 2 households will apply - we will keep under review whether it is safe to increase this.

As soon as possible and by no later than Step 3, we will also update the advice on social distancing between friends and family, including hugging. But until this point, people should continue to keep their distance from anyone not in their household or support bubble.

Most businesses in all but the highest risk sectors will be able to reopen. In all sectors, COVID-Secure guidance will remain in place and businesses may not cater for groups bigger than the legal limits. Indoor hospitality will reopen - and as in Step 2, venues will not have to serve a substantial meal with alcoholic drinks; nor will there be a curfew. Customers will, however, have to order, eat and drink while seated.

Other indoor locations to open up in Step 3 include indoor entertainment venues such as cinemas and children’s play areas; the rest of the accommodation sector, including hotels, hostels and B&Bs; and indoor adult group sports and exercise classes. The government will also allow some larger performances and sporting events in indoor venues with a capacity of 1,000 people or half-full (whichever is a lower number), and in outdoor venues with a capacity of 4,000 people or half-full (whichever is a lower number). In the largest outdoor seated venues, where crowds can be spread out, up to 10,000 people will be able to attend (or a quarter-full, whichever is lower).

Up to 30 people will be able to attend weddings, receptions and wakes, as well as funerals. This limit will also apply to other types of significant life events including bar mitzvahs and christenings.

"although gatherings of over 30 people will remain illegl."

I think its important to take the positive out of this , yesterday nobody had a idea of what was going to happen now that plans have emerged some are griping already. At least you have set dates to look forward to and if people keep to the rules things can only get better . I have a Son getting married in a few days and only 8 people are allowed attend ,but the positive thing is the road to recovery is opening up.

Don't think it has been suggested racecourses will be open without bookies and bars, has it? If so other than teetotal in running players who is going to go?

Why do you need a Bar open at a racecourse,?.
I like a drink as much as anyone, but i'd rather go racing on a Saturday afternoon without the
Plastic gangsters who get bevvied up for a tear up and spoil it for everyone else.

Unfortunately if bars were not allowed to open at racecourses there would soon be no racecourses to go to.

I am reminded of the probably made up story attributed to several famous persons about a  US visa application "Do you intend the undermine the Constitution of the United States of America" reply "Sole purpose of visit". Saturday afternoon without a few bevvies prior to a tear up (never heard that expression before)-what else are Saturdays for?

Morning Workrider - hope the big day goes well. As you know I've been known to partake of a few beers before and during racing (as vast majority of my bets already placed beforehand) but I'd happily head off to Hamilton with the Temperance Society (albeit for a limited period!) just to be racing again..

So on the 12th April we can go and sit inside and get a haircut or sit outside in a beer garden but we have to wait another 5 weeks before we can stand outside and watch some horses run around a track. Ridiculous.

Make sure the BHA get this message. They are unlikely to think of this by themselves.

What’s your son doing workrider ?, is he getting married ? . If he is then it’s the right time to do it , in fact weddings should be private affairs from now on , the lockdowns have shown that a wedding is a wedding , no need for having 200 people at them , most of which don’t even want to be there . The people involved do their thing , they have little or no expense and the guests don’t have to get a present , new clothes , maybe pay for a hotel , and finally have to endure the torture of being at one

delaying GN sounds good but can't see the govt going for it - imagine that the first weekend after some (!) restrictions eased, queues outside betting shops, staff trying desperately to keep numbers inside within limits 10-20 people, etc etc would the negative publicity really be worth it? I'd guess that at least 50% of people planning a bet on the GN have an online/mobile account...similarly chester are chasing the wrong horse with their 5000 dream
