As predicted wholesale changes to England's lockdown from 4 July. Here's everything you need to know. For many, the most welcome news is that two households will be able to gather indoors and stay overnight. Read more on who you're allowed to meet.
The moves go hand in hand with a cut in the 2m social distancing rule to "one metre plus". Businesses told they can open in 10 days' time subject to detailed measures they must put in place - for example, around requiring customers to provide contact details.
Not all sectors of England's economy received good news. Gyms, swimming pools and beauty salons are among those who can't reopen their doors yet.
However, the reopening plans are not "risk-free". They are "reversible" if a second wave of coronavirus infection becomes apparent.
All the more important that everyone 'Stays Alert'. Continue to make responsible decisions that you are comfortable with. Remember 80% of the population who would test positive for coronavirus DO NOT have symptoms which makes it difficult to detect. Keep safe.
Whatever happens next we won't be told about it in a daily press conference from No 10, though - they're being scrapped unless there is something new to say.
