On Monday, July 5, two weeks ahead of the planned lifting of the final coronavirus restrictions, Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation.
He revealed he expects the final step of easing to proceed as planned on July 19.
The final decision about this step will be confirmed on July 12 after one final review of the latest data.
But if this step goes ahead, face masks will no longer be legally required and social distancing guidelines will be scrapped.
After 16 months of lockdown restrictions, indoor and outdoor legal limits will also be removed and workers will no longer be required to work from home where possible.
