Step 3 in England goes ahead as planned – regulations come into effect on 17th May

The Government issues Step 3 regulations

The government has published The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps and Other Provisions) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2021, coming into effect on 17th May.

The regulations amend the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Steps) (England) Regulations 2021 (“Steps Regulations”), to move all places in England (including the territorial sea and airspace above England) from the Step 2 area to the Step 3 area, so that the restrictions set out in Schedule 3 to the Steps Regulations apply throughout England with effect from 17th May 2021, the date on which these new Regulations come into force.

The regulations also make other minor amendments to existing requirements, including removing the limit on the number of people who can attend a funeral.
