  • Roadmap out of Lockdown:

From 8 March, people in England will see restrictions start to lift and the government’s four-step roadmap offer a route back to a more normal life.

Only when the government is sure that it is safe to move from one step to the next will the final decision be made. The decision will be based on four tests:

  • the vaccine deployment programme continues successfully
  • evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated
  • infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS
  • our assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new Variants of Concern

The government will continue to protect the public by ensuring local outbreaks are managed quickly and effectively and that we combat new dangerous variants, both within the UK and at the border. The government will also continue to support families and businesses throughout the steps set out in the roadmap

More information about the next steps out of lockdown is available on the government website.

NHS Test and Trace:

We are asking people who have had a positive test for COVID-19 (or their parents or guardians), and those who may have had contact with people who have tested positive, to provide some vital information to help us understand and slow the spread of infection. This is called contact tracing and is a very effective method of protecting people and slowing the spread of infectious diseases like coronavirus.
