The British government wants to allow “intimate contact” such as hugs and kisses at greetings and farewells again, as Secretary of State Michael Gove announced on Sunday. The relaxation is to take effect May 17, when other restrictions will also be lifted.

The government wants to “restore friendly, intimate contact between friends and family (…),” Gove told the BBC.

From May 17, most outdoor contact restrictions will end. Then meetings with up to 30 people will be allowed. Indoors, up to six people or two households will be allowed to meet – that includes restaurants and pubs, which will be able to reopen their indoor spaces. Cinemas, hotels and indoor sports can also open then. Foreign travel without quarantine requirements will also be permitted again, although only to a few countries for now, including Israel and Portugal.

The British government plans to lift all coronavirus measures on June 21. This is also made possible by the success of the vaccination program. One-third of adults in the United Kingdom are fully vaccinated against the virus.
