All the things we’re allowed to do again from tomorrow, amid lockdown restrictions easing

Further Covid-19 restrictions will be lifted from tomorrow, Monday 12 April, after the Government confirmed that their roadmap for lockdown restrictions easing is on track.

Non-essential retail shops, personal care premises such as hairdressers, beauty and nail salons and indoor leisure facilities such as gyms and spas will be open once again to the general public.

People will also be allowed to eat and drink in outdoor seating areas of pubs and restaurants. A curfew or a “substantial meal” requirement will not be included, but customers must only eat or drink when they are seated.

Outdoor gatherings must still be limited to six people or two households, and socialising indoors with anyone you do not live with or have a support bubble with will still be restricted.

Requirements such as wearing face coverings inside and social distancing must still be adhered to, with indoor settings allowing you to visit only if you are alone or with your household.

Public buildings such as libraries and community centres will also re-open to the public amid the lockdown restrictions easing.

Outdoor settings and attractions such as zoos, theme parks, drive-in cinemas and drive-in performance events will also be reopened.

Those wishing to go away for overnight stays will also be allowed to do so from tomorrow, with self-contained accommodation permitted to reopen.

A statement from North East Lincolnshire Council reads: “People should continue to work from home where they can, and minimise domestic travel where they can. International holidays are still illegal.

“Some venues and businesses will be required to take customer, employee and visitor contact details and display QR codes that people will need to scan using a smart device to then enter. This includes some hospitality services, tourism and leisure services, close contact services, community centres and village halls.

“Customers who decline to share their contact details may be refused entry to some venues.”

Currently, North East Lincolnshire has a positive test rate of 59.5 per 100,000 people.
