Boris Johnson is due to reveal the government’s roadmap out of lockdown this evening. It’s expected he’ll announce that schools in England will return on Monday 8th March, and also from that date a coffee with a friend outside will be permitted. It’s also thought that from 29th March 2 households will be able to meet outside and outdoor sport can resume.
But no date yet for opening non-essential businesses and hospitality venues, and overnight stays are still not permissible.
Premier’s Esther Higham spoke to the Conservative MP for South West Devon, Sir Gary Streeter.
