Boris's roadmap for lifting lockdown?

IMHO, if the government wants schools to reopen in 2 weeks then they really need to get teachers vaccinated as a matter of top priority.


8 March - All schools and colleges will reopen

29 March - People will be allowed to meet outside, either with one other household or within the "rule of six", including in private gardens. Outdoor sport facilities will reopen, including tennis and basketball courts.

No earlier than 12 April - All shops allowed to open. Restaurants and pub gardens will be allowed to serve customers sitting outdoors, including alcohol. Gyms and spas can reopen for individuals and households.

No earlier than 17 May - People can meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors. Six people or two households can meet indoors. Up to 30 people can meet to celebrate weddings or other life events, like christenings.

No earlier than 21 June - All legal limits on social contact will be removed

1. Well, you've got Scotland and Wales as a testbed.

In both, it's a phased school reopening starting today, rather than the wholesale free-for-all Johnson's proposed:

Wales: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-56131719

Northern Ireland plans a phased reopening starting on 8 March: https://www.belfastlive.co.uk/news/northern-ireland-school-reopening-dates-19867883

I'd be happier if all teachers were vaccinated first, but while we're waiting for that, the reliance seems to be on distancing and hygiene measures and lateral flow testing.
