The UK plans to reopen from March 8 to June 21

These are the four stages in which you plan to return to normal

The reopening of schools on March 8 marks the beginning of a process of gradual disruption in the UK, which will end soon on June 21, although each of its four phases will only be used if it meets the four conditions set by the government.

The administrator will consider the evolution of the vaccination program – with similar measures in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – to determine whether to restrict the restrictions introduced in January; If hospitalization and mortality are reduced from Govt-19; If the level of infections persists in the public health system, and new types of corona virus are under control.

These are the four levels, with their corresponding dates and measurements:

The first phase

– March 8

Schools are reopened and open play is allowed. Two people from different houses can meet in outdoor public places. Nursing homes only allow one visitor.

– March 29

Six people from six different homes, or two homes of any size, can meet outside, in public places or in private gardens.

Outdoor sports facilities such as golf courses and basketball courts are reopened, and organized outdoor team play is allowed.

If possible you should work from home, but be allowed to travel beyond the “local area”.

Second level

– As of April 12th

Open spaces including non-essential shops, hairdressers, beauty salons, libraries and museums, as well as restaurant and bar terraces are reopening. Gyms and indoor swimming pools (you can go alone or with family) and zoos and theme parks also open their doors, with strenuous measures of personal distance.

Fifteen people are allowed to attend the funeral, 15 are allowed for weddings and vigils, and camps and vacations are reopened where facilities are not shared.

Phase III

– Until May 17, early

Up to 30 people from different homes can have one in the outdoors. Up to six people from different backgrounds, or more, can meet from a maximum of two homes or other closed spaces such as bars and restaurants, cinemas or group activities.

If all goes well, international travel and vacations abroad will begin to be recognized.

1,000 people, or half capacity (whichever is less) will be allowed in closed stadiums, while the limit for open spaces will be 4,000. In large stadiums, there will be a maximum of 10,000 people or half capacity (minimum number).

Weddings can be attended by a maximum of 30 people and other ceremonies such as baptism are recognized.


– Not before June 21st

Restrictions on social interaction have been lifted and all sectors of the economy, such as discos, are still open. Massive events will be allowed.
