PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Prime Minister Boris Johnson is today setting out a "roadmap" explaining how the Government will end the lockdown. There have been a lot of leaks and a lot of speculation about what's in it, but here's what has been officially confirmed so far. Boris Johnson's roadmap has four stages The lockdown will end gradually, and there are four stages. Step one - March 8 and March 29 Step one actually has two parts. On March 8 , every school will re-open. Also, after-school sports and activities will restart. People will be allowed to socialise in a public space, such as a park, with one other person. This means they can sit down for a coffee, drink or picnic, which is not currently permitted. From March 29 , as school holidays begin, more social contact will be permitted. Outdoor gatherings of either six people (the rule of 6) or two households can take place. The Government says the aim is to give greater flexibility for families or friends to meet outside, where the risk of transmission is significantly lower. Also from March 29, outdoor sports facilities such as tennis or basketball courts will reopen. Organised adult and children’s sport can also return. This will allow, for example, grassroots football for all ages to begin again.

. Vaccines take three weeks to be effective, so those people should have some degree of immunity to Covid-19 by March 8. There are four tests to decide whether to move to the next stage The Government has decided when the first stage of ending the lockdown will take place. And it has set out rough dates for the next three stages. But it says those plans could be changed, if the virus is not under control. There are four tests for deciding whether to go ahead with each stage of the roadmap. Those are: The vaccine deployment programme continues 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. Our assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new Variants of Concern. The government says the four tests are currently being met, so the first step will proceed from 8 March.
There will continue to be national restrictions rather than regional tiers The Government says that the spread of the virus is roughly the same across the country, and therefore restrictions will be eased step-by-step across the whole of England at the same time. What happens next? MPs will have an opportunity to vote on the regulations that will enable this roadmap, in Parliament in the coming weeks.
