Covid 19 Roadmap

Following the announcement from central government yesterday (Monday 22 February), the COVID-19 Roadmap has been released.

The roadmap explains how we plan to come out of this lockdown cautiously and safely.

It's broken down into four key steps:

Step 1 between 8 March and 29 March
Step 2, no earlier than 12 April
Step 3, no earlier than 17 May
Step 4, no earlier than 21 June


All the dates in the roadmap are indicative and subject to change. 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 COVID-19 Roadmap gives us all a clear pathway out of this lockdown. However, we must not become complacent.
