01:37 – The UK’s Roadmap to Resume Travel
Despite the risk of new coronavirus strains, governments and businesses alike have shown a lot of optimism that things will return to some semblance of normalcy within the year.
UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, has laid out a roadmap for easing Covid-19 restrictions, including lifting the ban on international travel.

In January, the United Kingdom went into a national lockdown, banning British nationals from leaving the country unless they have a legal reason to do so. In addition, a stay-at-home order was enforced for all residents and foreign nationals in the UK.

There will be a minimum of five weeks between each step. four weeks for the data to reflect changes in restrictions, followed by seven days notice of the restrictions to be eased.
Step 1 will take place on 8 March 2021, when schools can reopen, and as of 29 March 2021, two households will be able to meet outdoors.
Step 2 will start at least five weeks after Step 1, no earlier than 12 April 2021.
The government has stated that this could be postponed if the Prime Minister and his advisers say it is necessary. This includes the opening of non-essential retail, outdoor hospitality, gym and swimming pools, and self-catered holidays.
This means that domestic overnight stays and self-contained accommodation may be allowed as early as 12 April 2021.
Step 3 will take place at least five weeks after Step 2, no earlier than 17 May 2021. This includes the reopening of hotels and B&Bs in England, some large events, and international travel subject to review.
Step 4 will take place at least five weeks after Step 3, and no earlier than 21 June 2021. At this point, virtually all restrictions would be lifted

PM Boris Johnson said this will “give people time to make their plans for the summer”.
