The Prime Minister has laid out a roadmap for England coming out of lockdown (note: each devolved nation has different policies on lockdown).
There are 4 stages lying before us, and each stage has a 5 week period of separation to test the affect of relaxing restrictions on the virus rates.
While these dates are not definite (they are just the earliest points at which each stage can be implemented), we are all hopeful that this plan will be successful, and we will be able to spend time with friends and family as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we must continue to adhere to the social distancing rules, take extra care to wash our hands and wear masks, and get our vaccines when we’re offered them.
Please see below for the full letter sent to MPs by the Prime Minister.
