From 8 March, people in England will see restrictions start to lift, and the four-step Roadmap will begin, to offer a route back to a normal life, but only as long as we keep following the rules to keep us safe.

There are still three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other:

  • Wash hands - Keep washing your hands regularly
  • Cover face - Wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
  • Make space - Stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions
