On February 22, the prime minister set out a roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions in England.

Under Step 1 of the plan, the first changes will come into effect on Monday, March 8.

Step 2, no earlier than 12 April: The first easing of restrictions for the hospitality sector as venues can serve people outdoors only.

Step 3, no earlier than 17 May: Further easing of restrictions and the reopening of Indoor hospitality.

These dates are dependent upon us meeting four key criteria, including deaths, infection rates and roll out of the vaccine.
