What can you do from March 29 as lockdown restrictions ease? What will the new lockdown rules be? Here’s the latest on England’s roadmap plan.
The roadmap out of lockdown in England is approaching it’s second part on 29th March with some more coronavirus restrictions being lifted as well as the reintroduction of the rule of six.
Ahead of the 12th April – where the biggest set of lockdown restrictions are due to be lifted – the government will be removing another set of rules as they help England gradually return to normal outside of lockdown.

So what can you do from 29th March? What is the rule of six? Here’s what lockdown restrictions are being lifted as part of the roadmap should the government go ahead:
The second stage of part one of the roadmap out of lockdown means a few small restrictions will be eased to help control any further spread of the virus.
If the government is happy all four tests are met, from 29th March residents in England should be able to:
Up to six people, or two households, are now allowed to mix outdoors again.
Support bubbles are counted as one household and any children under the age of five are not included in the head count.
This also means private garden meets are allowed again.
The 12th April is step 2 of the roadmap out of lockdown and has some of the biggest rule liftings.
From this date, England can hopefully see one of the biggest returns to ‘normal life’ with non-essential shops, hairdressers and barbers and gyms reopening.
Outdoor dining and drinking should also be permitted along with self-catering holidays in the UK opening for business once more.
Around one week before these lockdown restrictions are lifted, Boris Johnson and the government will assess Covid data and deem if this is safe to do so.

BERLIN — German authorities were expected to extend lockdown measures again on Monday and possibly tighten some restrictions as they face a steady rise
BERLIN — German authorities were expected to extend lockdown measures again on Monday and possibly tighten some restrictions as they face a steady rise in new coronavirus infections, but leave schools open for now.
Chancellor Angela Merkel and the country’s 16 state governors, who in highly decentralized Germany are responsible for imposing and lifting restrictions, held a videoconference nearly three weeks after last agreeing a several-step plan paving the way to relax some rules.
Since then, infections have increased steadily as the more contagious variant first detected in Britain has become dominant.
Most lockdown restrictions are currently set to run through March 28.
The chancellery is proposing an extension until April 18.
Rather than new moves toward a more normal life, one focus now is pressing regional officials to use consistently an “emergency brake” mechanism under which relaxations granted in recent weeks — such as the partial reopening of nonessential shops — are supposed to be reimposed if new weekly infections in an area exceed 100 per 100,000 residents on three consecutive days.
“Unfortunately, we will have to make use of this emergency brake,” Merkel said Friday.
The weekly infection rate per 100,000 people stood at 107 nationwide on Monday, up from the mid-60s three weeks ago.
Officials also face the question of what to do about Easter holidays.
Restaurants, bars and many leisure facilities in Germany have been shut since early November, and hotels closed for tourists.
At the same time, Germany’s criteria for assessing the virus situation abroad meant that a travel warning for parts of Spain was lifted earlier this month, prompting a much-criticized surge of bookings to the popular vacation island of Mallorca.
There have been calls for people returning even from places abroad that aren’t deemed “risk areas” to face obligatory tests and quarantine.
The government has stressed that it continues to discourage tourist trips and would discuss limits both on foreign and domestic travel.
Drawing up legally watertight rules has proved a headache at times.
A court in Germany’s most populous state, North Rhine-Westphalia, said Monday it struck down rules requiring people wanting to go to some shops to get appointments beforehand.
It said they violated a requirement that businesses get equal treatment.
The state government promptly reinstated the rules, tightening them for some businesses — such as bookshops and garden centres — that were previously exempt.
State authorities are expected to resist closing schools again, many of which have only recently reopened after months of remote teaching.
A draft text suggested schools would only need to close when the number of weekly cases tops 200 per 100,000 inhabitants.
Meanwhile, Germany is trying to speed up its vaccination campaign after a slow start.
On Friday, Merkel and the state governors agreed to gradually bring on board ordinary doctors’ practices just after Easter.
So far, Germany has largely relied on special vaccination centres.
By Sunday, 9% of the population had received at least a first vaccine dose and 4% had received both doses.
The number of daily deaths per capita in Germany is now higher than in the United States or Britain, which have seen deaths from COVID-19 drop sharply amid the speedy vaccination campaigns there.
