Latest lockdown moves for Wales and Scotland – as England's rules are eased

The next level of lockdown restrictions will be relaxed on Monday April 12th when Boris Johnson’s “Stay Local” policy is completely removed.

At the same time, non-essential retail stores, hairdressers, beauty salons, libraries, and community centers can reopen their doors and sit in a beer garden or meet up with friends and family outdoors.

Holiday campsites can also be opened as long as they are only used by household groups or individuals.

The British government The website states: “Overnight stays in England are permitted and independent accommodation can also be reopened, but only for members of the same household or support bubble.”

Nursing home people can also have two visitors instead of one as of this date, and weddings of up to 15 people are allowed, compared to only six before.

But it is not the same in all UK countries.

Latest lockout rules in Wales

English are allowed to travel to Wales. This will be lifted from April 12th. So you can visit your loved ones or Welsh beauty spots as long as it is by the rules.

The Welsh government has already lifted its “Stay Local” rule which allows people living in Wales to travel anywhere within Welsh borders.

Single-person households can now also book self-catering accommodation in Wales, allowing overnight stays under certain circumstances.

Different households cannot all pile up in one car, however, and the Welsh government is not lifting hospitality restrictions set to reopen on April 26th.

Restaurants and bars can reopen outdoors from April 26th and May 3rd. Outdoor wedding receptions for up to 30 people may be permitted. Fairs and theme parks can also be open from April 26th.

Restrictions for Scotland

Although Scotland’s lockdown is gradually easing, everyone is encouraged to stay on-site. This means that residents should be no more than five miles from their parish area.

Non-essential business and some services have already resumed and Scotland plans to relax the next lockdown restrictions by the end of April.

From April 26th, outdoor hospitality can be opened with alcohol until 10 p.m. Indoor hospitality without alcohol allowed and closed at 8 p.m. for groups of up to six people from three households.

Tourist accommodations may reopen to visitors from other parts of Scotland – although self-catering accommodations are restricted according to indoor gathering rules.

Further reopening of hospitality such as bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes is allowed.

These can be open indoors until 10:30 p.m., alcohol and time-limited periods of two hours are permitted, or until 10 p.m. outdoors, if alcohol is permitted. However, no announcements have been made yet.
