How are lockdown measures being lifted across the UK’s four nations?


Coronavirus lockdown restrictions continue to be eased in different stages across the four nations of the UK.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is the latest leader to announce a relaxation of measures, with the country’s “stay at home” order to be removed from April 2.

The country’s “stay at home” order is to be removed on April 2, with Scots instead advised to “stay local” for an initial period of no more than three weeks.

From April 5, click-and-collect retail services, along with garden centres, car dealerships, homeware stores and barbers and hairdressers, will also be able to reopen.

Scotland will then move out of lockdown and return to a levels system – starting with a “modified level three” – on April 26.

On the same date, travel restrictions across the country will be dropped.

Ms Sturgeon said the country is expected to move into level two measures by May 17, allowing for indoor socialising, followed by level one in early June and level zero by the end of that month.

Meanwhile, children in primaries four to seven returned to school on Monday to join their younger classmates who went back on February 22.

More secondary school pupils also returned to classrooms part-time on Monday.

Up to four people from two households are allowed to meet outdoors in Scotland, as measures on gatherings were relaxed on March 12.

For children aged between 12 and 17, outdoor meetings are limited to four people, but can be from up to four households.
