Lockdown easing gets the green light - changes in full as Boris Johnson confirms beer gardens, shops and hairdressers can reopen
Lockdown restrictions in England are set to be relaxed even further next week so that shops, hairdressers and pub beer gardens can reopen.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that the move to the second step of the road map was “fully justified by the data”.
Here the PA news agency sets out what restrictions are being lifted and what people in England will be able to do.
– What is changing in England from Monday?
From April 12 non-essential shops, hairdressers, nail salons, libraries and outdoor hospitality venues such as beer gardens will be allowed to reopen across England.
Care home residents will also be allowed a second regular indoor visitor with infants and children not counted as one of the two – meaning care home residents in England will be allowed to see small bubbles of loved ones for the first time in months.
Most outdoor attractions such as zoos and theme parks can reopen, although wider social distancing rules will still apply to prevent indoor mixing between different households.
Indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and swimming pools will also be opened, but for use by people on their own or in household groups.
– Are any other restrictions easing?
