Prime Minister Announces Four-Step Plan For Coming Out Of Lockdown

Prime Minister Announces Four-Step Plan For Coming Out Of Lockdown

Boris Johnson has unveiled a four-step 'roadmap' for lifting lockdown in England, revealing pubs will open on 17 May at the earliest, with international travel also allowed on this date if all goes to plan.

Pubs and restaurants will open with no requirement for a substantial meal to be served alongside alcoholic drinks and no curfew.

The country's third national lockdown came into force on 6 January, but now the Prime Minister has outlined how restrictions will be 'cautiously' lifted, with a minimum of five weeks between each step.

Step One will begin from 8 March, when schools will open and people will be able to meet outdoors recreationally with one person from another household.

From 29 March, the rule of six will apply outdoors between two households and outdoor sport will return.

Step Two will commence from 12 April at the earliest, at which point outdoor hospitality, gyms, libraries, all retail, and outdoor attractions can reopen.

Step Three will begin no earlier than 17 May and will allow groups of up to 30 to meet outdoors, cinemas to reopen and organised indoor sport to recommence. International travel will also be allowed.

Step Four will begin no earlier than 21 June, at which point there will be no legal limits on social contact, enabling nightclubs to reopen and large events to go ahead.

  • The vaccine deployment programme is continuing successfully.
  • Evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated.
  • Infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS.
  • The assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new variants.

Currently, the government has determined that these conditions are being met, enabling the country to move to the first stage of lockdown easing on 8 March.

The government has also said that due to the 'relatively uniform spread of the virus', restrictions will be eased at the same time across the country, rather than on a regional basis.
