You Can Enter Someone's Home From Tomorrow To Use The Toilet Or Get Outside

As the lockdown restrictions start to ease, from tomorrow (29 March) you'll be allowed to enter someone's home only to use the toilet, get a drink or if it is the only way to get outside.

This means that the 'stay at home' rule that has been imposed for what feels like an eternity, will hopefully become a distant memory - if people continue to social distance and stick to the rule of six.

This next phase is off the back of evidence which shows that it's safer for people to meet outdoors instead of inside.

So, as most schools start to break up for the Easter holidays, outdoor gatherings (including those in private gardens) of either six people (the Rule of six) or two households will also be allowed to happen, making it easier for friends and families to meet outside. Did someone say barbecue?

With that poses the question: where can I pee? Well, it seems we can actually venture into the house of the garden we're visiting. But not for a brew, sit down on the new couch or have a good inspection of the new decorating.

It's specifically just to use the loo or if walking through the property means getting outside.

When asked for clarification, the Prime Minister's official spokesperson said: "Yes, people can move through a private household to get to a garden if they need to."

According to Heart, when quizzed about using the bathroom while socialising in someone's private garden, the spokesperson added: "Yes, as I say, the same as the situation last year."

It's been made quite clear that you shouldn't be socialising indoors and must only enter the house for those two reasons.

Also from tomorrow, outdoor sports facilities such as tennis and basketball courts, as well as open-air swimming pools, will also be allowed to reopen and people will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports.

The government website goes on to explain: "The 'stay at home' rule will end on 29 March but many restrictions will remain in place. People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes.

"Travel abroad will continue to be prohibited, other than for a small number of permitted reasons. Holidays abroad will not be allowed, given it will remain important to manage the risk of imported variants and protect the vaccination programme.

"The government has launched a new taskforce to review global travel which will report on 12 April."
