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


Hairdressers have reopened in Wales as Covid-19 lockdown restrictions continue to be eased in different stages across the four nations of the UK.

The latest measures to be relaxed have also seen primary school pupils in Wales and Scotland return to classrooms, along with some of those in secondary schools.

Children in primaries four to seven have returned to school to join their younger classmates who went back on February 22.

More secondary school pupils also returned to classrooms part-time from 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 also limited to four people, but can be from up to four households.

Communal worship in Scotland will restart from March 26, with the limit for services rising from 20 people to 50.

The stay-at-home order is expected to be lifted from April 5 under the phased plan.

Hairdressers and barbers in Wales reopened for appointments only on Monday.

Primary school pupils also returned to classrooms on Monday, joining those in foundation years who returned in February, and face-to-face teaching will resume for learners in years 11 and 13.

Secondary schools now have the option to bring year 10 and 12 learners back, while there will be “flexibility” to allow all other pupils to “check-in” with teachers on a limited amount of days ahead of a full return after the Easter break.

Meanwhile, all students studying at universities in Wales will be able to return to campus from April 12, the country’s Education Minister Kirsty Williams has said.
