From Monday 29 March, step one of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown will see further restrictions start to lift following the opening of schools on 8 March. These changes are as follows:
From 29 March, when most schools start to break up for the Easter holidays, outdoor gatherings (including in private gardens) of either six people (the Rule of 6) or two households will be allowed, making it easier for friends and families to meet outside.
Business and activities
Outdoor sports facilities such as tennis and basketball courts, and open-air swimming pools, will also be allowed to reopen, and people will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports.
The ‘stay at home’ rule will end on 29 March but many restrictions will remain in place. People should continue to work from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible, avoiding travel at the busiest times and routes. Travel abroad will continue to be prohibited, other than for a small number of permitted reasons. Holidays abroad will not be allowed, given it will remain important to manage the risk of imported variants and protect the vaccination programme. The government has launched a new taskforce to review global travel which will report on 12 April.
This marks a new stage in the lockdown roadmap. 🚗
As of 29 March, certain rules will be lifted as we take the next step along the government's 'roadmap' towards the full lifting of lockdown. For an outline of the changes, visit: https://bit.ly/39cLsrd #KeepSurreySafe
