A new four step plan to ease the UK out of the current national lockdown has been revealed this week.
Boris Johnson announced his plan, which, if all goes correctly, ends with all restrictions being dropped and nightclubs reopening by the end of June.
The new plan kick starts on March 8 when all schools and colleges go back, shortly followed by the reopening of non-essential shops on April 12.
We have pulled together a list of everything that can and can’t open this April.
What can open
