Covid-19: Everyone ‘has to play their part’ in lockdown easing, says Hancock
Everybody has to “play their part” to meet the dates for England’s lockdown to be eased, Matt Hancock has said.
But it is currently “too early” to say how long social distancing will be in place, the health secretary said.
The aim is for measures like masks to become a “matter of personal responsibility”, rather than law, in the future.
Boris Johnson has outlined a strategy that could see restrictions lifted by 21 June – if strict conditions are met.
Nicola Sturgeon is to reveal plans to ease restrictions in Scotland later.
She has said Scotland will return to a tiered system, meaning different parts of the country could be under different rules.
