Johnson said at a press conference in Downing Street: From May 17, in line with the inaugural program set by the government, the number of people living in more than one household will increase from the current six to thirty., who can be accompanied by each other outdoors, and six people, who do not live under one roof, can hold gatherings indoors, for example in apartments.
Restaurants, pubs and bars – currently only available on terraces or in the garden – may open their indoor service rooms next Monday.
Cinemas, theaters, concert halls, museums and stadiums can be opened, but the number of visitors to large-scale events in these facilities is still limited.

Again, hotels and other tourist accommodations can accommodate guests and it will be possible to travel for tourism within the UK, so that travelers can also spend nights away from their homes.
It will also be possible to organize multi-day school trips, and from next Monday, high school students will no longer have to wear a mask in classrooms or in public areas of the school.
Students can also return to universities.
The current complete ban on travel abroad for tourism purposes will also be lifted on May 17, but significant restrictions will remain in place.
The British government announced last week that The ban will be replaced by a color-coded system similar to traffic lights, which will determine which countries can enter England without the current mandatory ten-day quarantine.
People living in England will also be able to travel to green tier countries for tourism purposes from next Monday and will not have to go into quarantine once they return.
However, the UK government has so far ranked only twelve countries in this category. Apart from Portugal, no EU member state has been added to this list, including Hungary, which, along with other EU countries, will be among the yellow category countries that will continue to be subject to quarantine from next Monday.
Foreigners from red category countries are not allowed to enter England. Foreign nationals with a residence permit in the UK, Ireland and the UK can enter, but they must spend ten days in government-designated and guarded hotels at their own expense.
But Boris Johnson, at a press conference held on Monday evening in which he announced further opening steps, stressed that the new rules, which will enter into force within a week, are a very important step on the way back to a normal lifestyle.
he added: Additional opening steps will depend on the epidemiological impact of changes from May 17But Britain is still on track to implement the fourth final point of the inaugural timetable on the scheduled date of June 21, which aims to remove all legal restrictions that were still in place at the time.
The measures announced by the British Prime Minister on Monday represent the largest easing of restrictions imposed so far at the time of the coronavirus pandemic in January.
