COVID Level: Roadmap Out of Lockdown

Welcome to our dedicated Coronavirus page.

From 8 March, people in England will see restrictions start to lift and the government’s four-step roadmap offer a route back to a more normal life.

From Monday 12 April additional premises will be able to reopen – with the rules on social contact applying. Indoor settings must only be visited alone or with household groups, with outdoor settings limited to either six people or two households.

You can find out more about what this means here, including what you can and cannot do.
