PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Bristol residents are split as to whether now is the time to ease restrictions or not. Boris Johnson announced his plan to ease the nation out of lockdown this afternoon (Monday, February 22) and you can follow our liveblog here. Key announcements included pupils in England returning to school from March 8 and non-essential retail being allowed to reopen from April 12, together with outdoor attractions and outdoor hospitality venues. However, indoor mixing of households will not be allowed until mid-May at the earliest, when limited crowds will also be allowed at sporting events, the Government’s roadmap said. And residents we spoke to in the city today (Monday) are divided as to whether coronavirus restrictions should stay in place or not. Lily Champ said she would like for things to open up again and be able to go back to work, but that she would rather it be safe. The 23-year-old - who works in a hair salon and is currently furloughed - said she would rather wait a bit longer if this meant that things can stay open and another lockdown wasn't necessary. The Horfield resident added: "You have to do what is best. "I do understand it is really bad for business. "It is hard to balance. "I just do not want to see another lockdown, even if it means staying in this one longer." June, an Old Market resident, said restrictions should stay in force for a while longer because, even though cases have gone down, they will go back up again if they open up too soon.

"You have the variants to worry about now as well." St Andrew's resident Ahmed, on the other hand, said he thought now is the right time to ease restrictions and start opening up again.

. "It [the lockdown] is having an impact on people's mental health. "It has been nearly a year now, they should have made some advancements. "The variants were always going to come out - it is going to happen. "This [coronavirus] is going to stay with us, you can not eradicate it, and we need to learn to live with it. Keeping everything locked up isn't the way." Windmill Hill resident Fabio agreed and said that maybe it was better if things start opening up again so the economy can start to breathe again. Fabio spoke ahead of the Boris Johnson announcement (Image: John Myers) He said that, in the past couple of weeks, people have started going out again more and the streets are looking busier. "It does not feel like we are in lockdown in a way," he added. "We have been in this situation for a year now and people are tired - it is very stressful. "It is necessary to get the economy going as shops are closing - the government can not afford everything." Violet - an 89-year-old from Knowle - said now was the right time for the lockdown to end and to get all shops and businesses open. The resident, who has had the first dose of the covid vaccine, said it was wrong people can not see relatives in hospital or care homes at present. "I haven't got a family, but you should let families get together," she said. "I am not worried about covid - if somebody is going to get it, they are going to get it anyway. "It is time we go back to some normality."
