The final stage of easing lockdown restrictions in England is to be delayed until 19 July
- Step 4 of the Roadmap will be paused for four weeks following a significant rise in the more transmissible Delta variant, which will allow delivery of the vaccination programme to be accelerated
- It is expected that England will move to Step 4 on 19 July, though the data will be reviewed after 2 weeks in case the risks have reduced.
- The government will continue to monitor the data, and the move to Step 4 will be confirmed one week in advance
