GOV.UK UPDATE Permitted events — no earlier than 21 June 2021 ‘Step 4 will take place no earlier than 21 June, following a further review of the data against the four tests. As before, the government will announce one week in advance whether restrictions will be eased as planned. With appropriate mitigations in place, by Step 4, the government aims to remove all legal limits on social contact and enable all events above the Step 3 capacity restrictions to go ahead. This will be strictly subject to the government review of the latest available data on the impact of the previous step against four tests and the outcome of the scientific Events Research Programme, potentially using testing to reduce the risk of infection, subject to further evaluation.’ – Taken from GOV.UK
