Changes to lockdown from 29 March
On Monday 29 March, further changes have taken places as part of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown. Some restrictions eased, including:
- you will be able to meet outdoors either in a group of 6 (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to 2 households (each household can include existing support bubbles, if eligible)
- you will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports with any number of people (outdoor sports venues and facilities will be able to reopen)
- childcare and supervised activities will be allowed outdoors for all children
- formally organised parent and child groups will be able to take place outdoors for up to 15 attendees. Children under 5 will not be counted in this number
The ‘stay at home’ rule has been lifted, however, many restrictions 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.
Despite some restrictions easing, this is not a return to normality, and we must continue to behave responsibly, including adhering to HANDS, FACE, SPACE, and no mixing with those outside your household or support bubble indoors.
