The government has published the 'COVID-19 Response - Spring 2021' setting out the roadmap out of the current lockdown for England. This is a step-by-step plan to ease restrictions in England cautiously.
This will impact on what businesses must close. We will update this page with further information. In the meantime please visit our FAQs on local restrictions page.
