An announcement is expected at 5pm tonight, from Downing Street.
The widely anticipated next phase of the road map to unlocking England is set to be announced today, around 5pm. It is hoped that non-essential retail shops will be permitted to re-open, along with hairdressers, salons, gyms and tourist attractions such as Blackpool Zoo. Beer gardens and outdoor restaurant/cafe seating areas are also on the list to be permitted – hopefully.
It is also expected that more will be revealed about the contentious ‘vaccine passports’, with ministers meeting today to sign off all details prior to tonight’s announcement.
The BBC, and Sky News will be airing the briefing, which is scheduled for 5pm tonight.
