How the rules will change on 29 March
On 22 March, the Government updated the national lockdown guidance to include a summary of changes to the rules in England from 29 March.
From 29 March:
- people will be able to meet outdoors either in a group of six (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to two households (each household can include existing support bubbles, if eligible)
· people will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports with any number of people (outdoor sports venues and facilities will be able to reopen)
· childcare and supervised activities will be allowed outdoors for all children
· formally organised parent and child groups will be able to take place outdoors for up to fifteen attendees. Children under five will not be not counted in this number
From 1 April, those identified as clinically extremely vulnerable will no longer be advised to shield. However, they should continue to take extra precautions to protect themselves. It is important that they continue to keep the number of social interactions they have low and try to limit the amount of time they spend in settings where they are unable to maintain social distancing.
