Next step in Government's COVID-19 roadmapPublished Monday, 12 April 2021
From Monday 12 April, we enter step 2 in the Government's COVID-19 roadmap.
From 12 April:
- non-essential retail, personal care premises, such as hairdressers and nail salons, and public buildings, such as libraries and community centres, will reopen
- most outdoor attractions and settings, including zoos, and theme parks, will also reopen although wider social contact rules will apply in these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households. Drive-in cinemas and drive-in performances will also be permitted
- indoor leisure facilities, such as gyms and swimming pools, will be allowed to reopen - but only for use by people on their own or with their household
- hospitality venues can serve people outdoors only. There will be no need for customers to order a substantial meal with alcohol, and no curfew - although customers must order, eat and drink while seated
- self-contained accommodation, such as holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households, can also reopen
- funerals can continue with up to 30 people, and the numbers able to attend weddings, receptions and commemorative events such as wakes will rise to 15 (from 6)
