July 19 – aka “Freedom Day” – saw the remaining coronavirus restrictions eased across England.However, MPs are still encouraging people to continue to wear face coverings in enclosed spaces and not rush to return to the office. 

With Covid cases continuing to surge, Mr Johnson addressed the country whilst in isolation at Chequers, stating that full-vaccination will be a condition of entry for nightclubs and large venues by the end of September.

Ministers have predicted that new Covid cases could total more than 100,000 a day within weeks, while scientific advisors say they expect at least 1,000 daily hospital admissions.

Sir Patrick Vallance, the Chief Scientific Advisor, has said that cases are currently “quite close” to the winter wave, and has called on young people to get vaccinated to guarantee the highest level of protection.

But in more positive news for the vaccine programme, over two-thirds of adults in the UK are now estimated to have received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine as of July 19 – hitting the Government’s target early.

With restrictions now at an end, the latest guidance is as follows.

Blah, blah

Be seeing you
