CORONA VIRUS NEWS March 31, 2021 . News changes daily so do ask any questions. Information from current UK media
GOOD NEWS . Vaccination continues apace with over half of UK’s adults ( 30 Million +) vaccinated so far. The aim is for all over 50’s to be vaccinated by the end of March, and all adults by the end of June , so far on track. The PM announced the “road map” to normality on 22 Feb., to be in stages subject to continued reduced cases, hospital admissions and deaths. The next review of this is April 12th.
STAGES TO ” NORMALITY “. Note essential shops and services, garden centres, transport , and restaurants/pubs offering a takeaway service have stayed open throughout.
March 8 : schools reopened .
March 29 : up to 6 people can meet outside including in private gardens. Outdoor sports and some leisure facilities reopen. Organised sports/matches/games restart subject to guidance.
April 12. Short- stay self-contained properties may reopen in England , and some larger hotels. (long stays and business trips have been/are possible before ). These may also now open : all other retail , hairdressers, indoor facilities eg gyms , public facilities eg libraries, pubs/restaurants etc using outdoor facilities ; outdoor attractions eg zoos, theme parks. Weddings and events up to 30 people allowed. Many restaurants /pubs getting booked up already as they have adapted with gazebos, marquees etc.
May 17 . Most restrictions on meeting outside will be lifted (up to 30 people) . Pubs/restaurants/cafes can now serve customers indoors. Outdoor theatres and events , indoor museums and galleries , other accommodation (BandBs ,hotels), adult group sport can all reopen. Controlled indoor and outdoor events with spectators (eg football, and other matches). Overseas travel may commence. ( see below)
June 21 ALL other remaining limits to be lifted to include ( we think) theatres . Note it is possible some stages will be allowed earlier if covid cases reduce as rapidly as currently /more vaccinations allow but we can’t promise this !
OVERSEAS ARRIVALS. ( as of 31 March, may change ) Those arriving ( both overseas residents and returning British citizens) before May 17 may only do so for business , compassionate or essential travel.
Quarantine ( as of 31 Macrh may change ) : visitors and returning UK nationals from 33 “high risk” countries must spend 10 days at government provided airport hotels at their own expense . (as in Australia). These are largely in Africa, S. America, The U.A.R., and Portugal. Currently USA, Canada , Australia and New Zealand, and most European and Asian countries are NOT included. Those from these “non risk” countries must still quarantine in their chosen accommodation (eg home, hotel /rental property) for 10 days with test after 5 days. ( if negative quaramtine is ended) . BUT quarantine is likely to change or be replaced by testing/proof of vaccination , all being discussed and/or trialled at the moment. Nothing clear yet, wait for April 12th.
And as always masks on public transport and indoor settings are compulsory and social distancing is still required.
So – better times are closer at last . We already have bookings, for spring onwards 2021, including postponements from 2020. If you have queries about an upcoming booking , do ask.
