A cap of 300 people will apply for hospitality venues and places of worship.
Singing in indoor venues will now be restricted, returning to a maximum of five performers indoors, provided they are 1.5m from one another and at least 5m from the audience who are not allowed to sing along.
Dancefloors will not be permitted, except for weddings, when a maximum of 20 from the wedding party will be permitted.
