PremierLeague-News.Com - A Government minister confirmed an easing of restrictions on outdoor socialising
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Schools, socialising and some sports are set to return next month under the Government's plan to relax coronavirus lockdown restrictions in England, according to a Government minister. Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi said the focus of easing lockdown restrictions is "steady as she goes" as he said there would be an easing of restrictions on outdoor socialising. It is expected the Prime Minister Boris Johnson will tell MPs that all pupils in all years can go back to the classroom from March 8, with outdoor after-school sports and activities allowed to restart as well. Socialising in parks and public spaces with one other person will also be permitted in a fortnight when the rules are relaxed to allow people to sit down for a drink or picnic. Outdoor sports facilities such as tennis and basketball courts are also set to reopen at the end of next month. Asked if travelling distances to see family would be permitted from March 29, Mr Zahawi said: "As long as it's outdoors, and it is two families, or the rule of six, then that is what will be permitted if the four tests continue to be delivered upon. "That will be the national lockdown, of course Scotland, as you mentioned, Northern Ireland and Wales will be setting out their own road map towards reopening their economies as well. "So at the moment, the focus is very much on the steady as she goes. Outdoor versus indoor, priority being children in schools, second priority is obviously allowing two people on March 8 to meet outside for a coffee to address some of the issues around loneliness and of course mental health as well.

However, Number 10 insisted that the "stay at home" message would remain in place despite the relaxation of some restrictions. The measures form the first of four steps in the road map which the Prime Minister is set to outline in a statement to the Commons on Monday afternoon. He has stressed the need to relax restrictions in a "cautious" manner, saying that the Government would make decisions based on the latest data at every step.

. "Our decisions will be made on the latest data at every step, and we will be cautious about this approach so that we do not undo the progress we have achieved so far and the sacrifices each and every one of you has made to keep yourself and others safe.
