.What is in the lockdown roadmap?During his address to MPs on Monday afternoon, the Prime Minister outlined the Government’s “cautious” four-stage plan to lift lockdown restrictions entirely by 21 June.Each step of the plan is subject to four tests being fulfilled, with gaps of at least five weeks between each phase, as below:Step 1From 8 March: All schools will open with outdoor after-school sports and activities allowed. Socialising in an outdoor public spaces – such as a park – will be allowed between two peopleFrom 29 March: Return of the “Rule of Six”: Groups of larger than six from a maximum of two households will also be allowed to meet. Outdoor sport and leisure facilities, such as golf courses and tennis courts, will be allowed to reopen, and organised outdoor sport can resume for children and adultsStep 2 – From 12 AprilAll non-essential retail can reopenPubs, restaurants and cafes can reopen, with outdoor seating onlyGyms and other indoor leisure can reopen (limited to household groups)Hairdressers and other personal care businesses can open againDomestic holidays can resume (limited to household groups)Outdoor attractions like zoos and theme parks can reopenWeddings and wakes can have up to 15 peopleLibraries and community centres can reopenAll children’s activities can resume, including indoor parent and children groups with up to 15 parentsTests will be conducted for larger eventsStep 3 – From 17 May Rules of Six will come into effect indoors (subject to review)Indoor seating can resume in pubs and restaurantsIndoor entertainment venues like cinemas and theatres can reopenDomestic overnight stays can resumeOrganised indoor adult sport can start againWeddings and other “significant life events” can include up to 30 peopleRemaining outdoor entertainment, such as performances, can resumeRemaining accommodation can reopenStep 4 – From 21 JuneLarger events can resumeNight clubs can reopenNo legal limits on social contactWhat are the four tests for easing lockdown?As the four-step plan is the way out of what the PM wants to be the final lockdown, four tests must be met before each stage is triggered.While the roadmap will set out future dates for the lifting of further measures on things like hospitality and retail, the timetable is dependent on the four tests being met:the vaccine deployment programme is continuing successfully – including the flow of supplies;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 government’s assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new “variants of concern”.
