What can I do from Monday 29 March?
The next key date in the Prime Minister’s roadmap out of lockdown is just a few days away now.
The government said these key dates were ‘no sooner than’ dates, depending on the latest data at the time. So, subject to the data, the changes we can expect from Monday 29 March include:
- Outdoor gatherings, including in private gardens, of up to 6 people (the Rule of 6) or two households of any size, will be allowed.
- The ‘stay at home’ rule ends on Monday 29 March, but many restrictions remain in place. People should still continue working from home where they can and minimise the number of journeys they make where possible.
- Travelling abroad is still a no-go, for all but a few permitted reasons. Holidays abroad are not allowed.
- Tennis courts, basketball courts, open-air swimming pools and other outdoor sports facilities can reopen. People can take part in formally organised outdoor sports.
That’s it for now. The next milestone after this one is Monday 12 April when, data permitting, we can expect non-essential retail, hairdressers, libraries, gyms, outdoor hospitality venues, holiday lets and more to reopen.
