Phase three will start on June 29th and phase four on July 20th.

While phase two will begin next Monday, which will see further easing of restrictions.

people can travel anywhere within their own county and 20km from their homes, whichever is greater, from Monday.

Up to 25 people will be allowed to attend funerals, while public libraries can also open from Monday.

Also from Monday, groups of up to six people can meet up indoors and outdoors once they keep two metres apart.

Groups of up to 15 people can also meet for outdoor sporting activities.

Shopping centres can re-open on June 15th - provided only the shops open and measures are taken to ensure people do not congregate at benches or food courts.

Shops re-opening will be required to operate staggered hours, opening no earlier than 10:30am and having dedicated time at the start for elderly, vulnerable and at-risk groups.

There will also be a new summer education programme for children with special education needs.
