This phase will see the majority of restrictions lifted and replaced by guidance and advice to enable us to work together to protect ourselves and to live our lives to the fullest extent possible.
We will need to continue to monitor the ongoing risk from the disease and take steps individually and collectively in our everyday lives to keep this risk under control.
From 22 October onwards, final restrictions will be lifted including:
requirements for physical distancing
requirements for mask wearing outdoors and in indoor private settings
limits on numbers at indoor and outdoor events and activities
restrictions on religious or civil ceremonies
limits on numbers that can meet in private homes/gardens
certification of vaccination, immunity or testing as a prerequisite for access to, or engagement in, any activities or events (with exception of international travel)
restrictions on high-risk activities (nightclubs for example)
Measures that will remain in place include:
self-isolation when we have symptoms
mask wearing in healthcare settings, indoor retail and on public transport
