Information about the current lockdown and plans to ease these restrictions with the government's 4-step plan.
This page was last updated at 3:40pm on Tuesday, 15 June. We will update this page as more information becomes available.
A 4-step plan (or roadmap) to ease lockdown restrictions in England was announced on Monday, 22 February 2021. We are now in Step 3 of the plan.
The government has announced a pause to 'Step 3' that has delayed 'Step 4' by 4 weeks. This means the lift of all restrictions will be no earlier than Monday, 19 July 2021.
There is a minimum of 5 weeks between each step to limit the risk of infections and hospitalisations, with at least 1 week’s advance notice of the changes in restrictions.
Restrictions will be lifted across the whole of England at the same time with no return to regional tiers.
Until all restrictions are eased, we should continue to follow National Lockdown: Stay at home guidance.
