Boris Johnson To Cut Social Distancing Rule




British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson is expected to announce on Tuesday a reduction in the two-metre social distancing rule.

Labour have said that “under certain circumstances” they would support moving to one metre.

In line with the government’s roadmap for lifting the lockdown, 4 July marks the start of “phase three” when some hospitality businesses can reopen, likely to include pubs and restaurants.

The government says it will publish detailed guidance to ensure these companies are “COVID secure”.

The prime minister is due to seek advice from experts and finalise the changes on Monday, before seeking approval from his Cabinet and outlining the plans to parliament on Tuesday.

Other nations of the UK have yet to change their two-metre guidance.

But both Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and her counterpart in Northern Ireland, Arlene Foster, are considering a reduction.
