Who decides when the pubs will reopen?

According to The sunGovernment ministers are currently planning a date for all pubs and bars to reopen in May.

It is hoped that half of all adults in the UK will have had at least their first coronavirus vaccination by then.

Another added, “Ventilation is key to fighting the virus, so expect a big boost to drink outside first, especially for larger groups.”
