Pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants are welcoming customers across the UK.
In England, Scotland and Wales these places can reopen indoors. However, pubs in Northern Ireland may only open indoors if they serve food, otherwise they will be allowed to sell alcohol outdoors.
In Scotland, it is mandatory to provide table service. In England, indoor table service must be used "where possible", alongside further measures such as assigning a single staff member per table.
Is it safe to go to the pub?
The option of ordering food on apps
Staff should wash their hands before handling plates and cutlery
Music should be kept at a low volume to avoid people needing to shout, which increases the risk of transmission
Pub-goers will be encouraged to book tables in advance- Live gigs and standing at the bar will not be allowed
Controlled access to toilets
Meanwhile, the Wetherspoons pub chain has said its staff will be provided with face coverings and protective eyewear and it will run a reduced food menu.
Bottles of ketchup and mayonnaise will be replaced by individual sachets. Customers will also be encouraged to sit outside in pub gardens, while some indoor seating areas will be separated by plastic screens.
Social distancing has been reduced from 2m (6ft) to 1m in Northern Ireland and from 2m to 1m plus in England. Restrictions apply in both cases.
Indoor pubs, cafes and restaurants in Scotland can apply for exemption from the 2m distancing rule, if they take certain steps.
Do I have to provide contact details if I eat out?
UK pub and hospitality trade bodies have published guidance for bars and restaurants on how to operate contact tracing.
Contact details only need to be taken from one person in a group
The details must be kept for 21 days
Customers only need to give their name and phone number. Owners should also note their arrival time, and how long they stay
Data can be taken in any way - on paper, online or during a phone booking
People can refuse to give information, but owners can choose not to serve them
If a customer tests positive, will the pub or restaurant have to close?
Possibly, but not necessarily.
Official government advice says an NHS Test and Trace call does not always mean a pub or restaurant must close.
It depends on the circumstances and when the infected person visited.
NHS Test and Trace could ask staff to:
get tested for Covid-19
take extra care with social distancing
self-isolate "in some circumstances"
Local health protection officials have the power to close establishments.
A few pubs in England, which reopened on 4 July, closed after customers tested positive.
If you are contacted personally by NHS Test and Trace, you should follow the advice and be prepared to self-isolate for a fortnight.
How did the hospitality sector cope during lockdown?
The hospitality sector was the third-largest employer in the country in 2018, according to UK Hospitality.
But many restaurants and cafes were already struggling even before the Covid-19 outbreak, in the face of rising rents and falling consumer spending.
Thousands of workers in the industry have been furloughed under the government's job retention scheme, which allows them to receive 80% of their monthly salary up to £2,500.
The British Beer and Pub Association, which represents the pubs industry, said it welcomed the move to reopen businesses but called on pub-goers to support staff "to ensure everyone can enjoy the return of our pubs safely".
