The Prime Minister had already laid out plans earlier in the year for ending Covid restrictions in the summer, with a date of 21st June suggested for a return to nightclubs.
Hot off the back of a successful weekend of raving in Liverpool, where 6000 clubbers took part in a government pilot weekend of events while campaigning in Hartlepool, the prime minister said there is a good chance the one-metre plus social distancing rule to end from 21st June.
He said, “As things stand, with the vaccine rollout going the way that it is – we have done 50 million jabs as I speak to you today, a quarter of the adult population has had two jabs. You see the results of that really starting to show up in the epidemiology.”
Further to this, Boris Johnson feels positive given the current progress being made for the 17th May lifting of restrictions, “I think that we will be able to go ahead, it feels like May 17th is going to be good.”
This means most businesses in all but the highest risk sectors will be able to reopen, including indoor hospitality with no need to serve substantial meals with alcoholic drinks nor a curfew, according to the government’s roadmap.
With each significant milestone being achieved, the horizon is edging closer and closer to when we can all be among a sea of happy ravers connected by the music; it’s so close we almost touch it. We’re so excited, are you!?
