There were lots of announcements in today’s Downing Street briefing so here’s a quick summary of the main points:

The four tests for easing lockdown in England have been met, so step two of the roadmap for relaxing restrictions can go ahead on 12 April
This includes the reopening of non-essential shops and allowing pubs and restaurants to serve customers outdoors
The prime minister says there is nothing in the current data to suggest England will have to deviate from its roadmap out of lockdown
The PM says the government is “hopeful” international travel can go ahead from 17 May and it will aim to give the industry “as much notice as possible”. But he says it is important to be “mindful” of the surge taking place in other parts of the world
The Global Travel Taskforce will report later this week but an update on its ongoing review published today sets out how the government intends to bring in a risk-based traffic light system for non-essential international travel
The government has also set out some of its thinking of the use of Covid status certificates – but the PM says they will not be part of stage two or three of the easing of lockdown.
