Leicester will remain in a local lockdown but with some measures relaxed, the health secretary has announced.
Matt Hancock said that from 24 July, restrictions will be lifted for schools and some shops.
There will be a “local power” to close non-essential retail where necessary, he added.
But restrictions on travel and only having social-distanced gatherings of up to six people will remain in force.
