What a delight to hear travel restrictions are being lifted on the 12th of April.
As part of the first step of the plan for easing lockdown: From 8 March - All schools will open with outdoor after-school sports and activities allowed. Recreation in an outdoor public spaces - such as a park - will be allowed between two people, meaning they would be allowed to sit down for a coffee, drink or picnic From 29 March - Outdoor gatherings of either six people or two households will be allowed. It is understood this will include gatherings in private gardens. Outdoor sports facilities such as tennis or basketball courts will reopen and organised adult and children's sport, such as grassroots football, will also return Secondary school pupils can access tests and will be required to wear face coverings in classrooms and shared spaces like corridors.
There will be a gap of at least five weeks between each of the plan's subsequent steps to allow for the impact of changes on infection rates and hospital admissions to be assessed.
The second step from 12 April would see major parts of the economy permitted to reopen: Non-essential retail opens, hairdressers and some public buildings like libraries Outdoor settings like alcohol takeaways, beer gardens, zoos and theme parks Indoor leisure like swimming pools, gyms and Self-contained holiday accommodation, such as self-catering lets and camp sites!
