Boris Johnson announces plan to ease coronavirus lockdown in England | LIVE

CA, 23 Feb 2021
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce his government's plan Monday for taking England out of lockdown with a phased reopening, according to reports.

The country has been under lockdown since Jan. 4 after a new, highly-contagious variant of the coronavirus was found inside parts of England.

Under the new plan, schools are expected to reopen across England on March 8 with limited return of outdoor social interaction.

Retail stores will reportedly be permitted to reopen April 12, with indoor entertainment allowed to resume May 17.

Johnson is also reportedly going to announce that further restrictions on social interactions will be lifted as of March 29, when schools take a break for Easter holiday.

The prime minister said the aim is, starting June 21, to remove all legal limits on social contact for weddings and other live events.
