YESTERDAY (22 February), Boris Johnson announced his ‘lockdown roadmap’ with some provisional dates about when we can return to normality.

Some key dates were announced about when certain places can reopen and when life can return to some semblance of normality.

From April 12 at the earliest: shops, hairdressers, nail salons, libraries, outdoor attractions and outdoor hospitality venues such as beer gardens will reopen.

From May 17 at the earliest, two households or groups of up to six people will be allowed to mix indoors and limited crowds will be allowed at sporting events.

From June 21 at the earliest, all remaining restrictions on social contact could be lifted, larger events can go ahead and nightclubs could finally reopen.

We asked our readers what they thought about the Prime Minister’s roadmap to ease lockdown- this is what they had to say:

Pete Forsyth said: “I'm just looking forward to getting back to work in may because I work in the hospitality sector.”

Rachel Fisher added: “Brill- we can't stay locked up for ever and can’t be funded off the government forever ... I'll be glad my work goes back to normal.

“I will love a couple of weeks off this summer instead of a day here a day there because we have had no respite.”

“Think it's planned out very well,” Tina Singleton added.

“Hopefully it will all go to plan as that depends on everyone abiding by the rules.”

However, not everyone was as optimistic about the Prime Minister’s roadmap.

One of our top fans, Sue Calvert, said: “Basically there's no road map to this.

“No matter what Boris gives us in law humans have so many different diversions of the law.”

Alex Rayment also said the plan was “not good”.

He added: “If the government continues a yo-yoing in and out of lockdown ‘live with the virus strategy’ it will be terrible for deaths and terrible for the economy.
