Spring Forward – easing of Coronavirus restrictions

As part of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown, from Monday 29 March we will see a further easing of Coronavirus restrictions in England.

  • Outdoor gatherings of either six people – or two households – will be allowed. This includes private gardens, but there should be no mixing of households indoors
  • Outdoor sports facilities will be allowed to reopen
  • People will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports

The ‘stay at home’ rule will end, but many restrictions will remain in place. People should continue to work from home where possible, minimise the number of journeys and avoiding travel at busy times. Travel abroad is only permitted for a small number of reasons and holidays abroad are still banned.

Matt Ashton, Liverpool’s Director of Public Health, said: “I’m pleased that Liverpool’s rate is now 36 cases per 100,000, I thank everyone who has helped play their part, whether by staying at home; following the rules when out and about, getting tested regularly, or isolating when required.

With the Easter break upon us, I know people will want to see their friends and families, but we have to remain focussed. I urge everyone to stick to the Covid-safe guidelines. Please make sure you have your vaccine when your turn comes. They are free, safe, effective and the best protection against coronavirus.”
