Boris Johnson set to make 3 big announcements in Easter Monday press conference

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will chair a coronavirus press conference on Easter Monday, telling the country the next stages of the lockdown exit.

It will be an important press conference with three major topics on the agenda – including overseas travel.

Easter Monday is also an important date for the next phase of the lockdown – the opening of unnecessary stores, hairdressers, pub gardens and more on April 12th.

Boris promised companies a week in advance to get ready – so Monday would be the last opportunity to do so.

Covid passports should also be mentioned according to the information The mirror.

Here’s what you need to know before the briefing:


The next step in lifting the lockdown in England is to reopen unnecessary shops, hairdressers and pub gardens on April 12th.

Boris promised companies a week in advance to get ready – so Monday would be the last opportunity to do so.

In addition to non-essential stores, gyms, zoos, and theme parks could also reopen and people could enjoy self-contained home vacations if the plans are put into practice.

Funerals continue for up to 30 people, but the number of guests at wedding ceremonies and receptions, as well as memorial services, could increase from six to 15 people.

foreign travel

For Britons missing out on their summer vacation, this is a key issue to watch out for.

The government is reportedly considering a traffic light system for countries to take a break.

Depending on the Covid-19 situation, countries with the brands red, amber or green could be seen there, with different restrictions for travelers of every color and possibly a ban on Rotland as a whole.

However, sources warn that Boris’ announcement may contain few details that would give them confidence to book a vacation and that he may not list which country is rated green.

The date on which overseas travel is to resume in the lockdown lifting plan is May 17th. However, it has been asked to extend this as there is still an increase in Covid cases in Europe.

Covid passports

Controversial Covid passports could also be discussed in Boris’ speech on Easter Monday.

There will definitely be a “passport” style that people can use to visit countries abroad that require proof of a sting, but its possible use in the UK for everything from gigs to pubs is uncertain.

Ministers intend to use the certification to test larger viewers at the FA Cup final at Wembley next month and at the World Snooker Championship in Sheffield from mid-April.

According to Boris, certification could either relate to a vaccine, or whether you’ve recently had a test, or your antibody status – or a combination of the three.

“These three things that work together are going to be useful in my opinion,” he said.

More than 70 MPs have vowed to oppose the “suppression” of a passport scheme.
