The first step in the roadmap out of lockdown begins on Monday 8th March.
All schools and colleges will reopen, people will be able to meet one other person in a public space outdoors, and care home residents will be able to nominate one named visited for regular visits. It will be followed by easing of restrictions on meeting up outdoors, and on outdoor sports and activities, from 29th March.
It is the first part of a 4 step roadmap for ending lockdown over the next few months when the four key tests show that it is safe to do so.
