Boris Johnson has confirmed the 4 July as the date when the hospitality industry can reopen, and said the two metre social distancing rule can be relaxed to one. “Given the significant fall in the prevalence of the virus, we can change the two metre social distancing rule from 4 July,” he told MPs. To cheers from the house, he said: “we will also reopen restaurants and pubs” though he added that “all hospitality indoors will be limited to table service, and our guidance will encourage minimal staff and customer contact.”
