The UK has revealed plans to gradually lift restrictions and allow galleries, auction houses and mid-size museums to reopen on June 1, 2020, on the second phase of the government’s plan, Artguide reports.

The first stage, which started on May 13, allows non-customer-facing employees to return to their positions if they cannot work remotely.

On June 1, small and mid-size art spaces will reopen. They are required to follow social distancing restrictions.

Major museums and art institutions are allowed to reopen on July 4, when phase three starts.
