A “roadmap” for easing Covid restrictions in England has been announced by the prime minister. While we still await for an announcement in Scotland, this is a light at the end of the the Covid tunnel and it’s so, so close!
Coronavirus Wedding Gate 1: 8th March*
Weddings attended by up to six people can take place in any circumstances
Coronavirus Wedding Gate 2: 12th April*
Weddings attended by up to 15 people can take place
Coronavirus Wedding Gate 3: 17th May*
Up to 30 people can meet to celebrate weddings or other life events
Coronavirus Wedding Gate 4: 21st June*
No legal limits on the number of people who can attend weddings and other life events. From April, the government will run pilots for events such as large weddings. This will help to determine how measures such as enhanced testing might allow large groups to attend without social distancing.
*Dates are no-earlier-than and depending on the following conditions: the vaccine rollout, pressure on the NHS, the number of hospitalisations, the impact of virus variants.
