From tomorrow, Monday 1 June, lockdown measures will be further eased in England, allowing people to gather in ‘social bubbles’ of up to six people.
Schools and some outdoor markets and car showrooms will also be open from Monday.
Meanwhile, millions of ‘shielders’ in England will be allowed to leave their homes to see loved ones in public.
Now that the measures are beginning to ease, thoughts are turning to just how far people are allowed to travel, and whether or not travel is permitted across the devolved countries.
Here’s what we know.

How far can I travel during lockdown?
There is currently no limit as to how far you are allowed to travel during the lockdown, although you are not permitted to stay overnight elsewhere.
That includes staying with friends and family who live far afield as you are still not allowed to visit anyone inside their home.
According to the Government’s latest advice, you are not allowed to ‘stay overnight away from your own home except for in a limited set of circumstances, such as work purposes.’
Speaking at the daily press conference on Thursday, Boris Johnson reiterated: ‘We don’t want people to stay overnight, we don’t want people to go to other households and stay there, I’m just afraid we’re not at that stage.’
So while there is no limit as to far you can travel, you would have to ensure you could practically reach your destination, and then come back home in one day.
All while avoiding using anyone’s toilets.
Can I travel between England and Scotland or Wales?
Because each of the devolved nations is observing slightly different lockdown rules – and because overnight stay is not permitted – travelling between them is currently still off the cards.
Addressing the public on Thursday, Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon said: ‘Don’t go indoors. Being in someone else’s house should still be avoided unless of course you are providing support to someone who is vulnerable.
‘And that means thinking in very practical terms. We are not putting a legal limit on how far you can travel to meet another household, but please use your good judgment.
‘If the distance is so far that you would have to use someone else’s bathroom, then perhaps you shouldn’t be doing it.’
Meanwhile, on Friday, Welsh first minister Mark Drakeford urged people to stay within a five-mile radius of their homes as much as they are able.
‘The further you travel the greater the risk that is posed to yourself and others of coronavirus ending up in parts of Wales where we have succeeded in keeping it to a minimum. Nobody I think wants to do that,’ he said.
‘If you can manage within a five-mile radius for food, medicines, and essential things that is what you should do.’
