Step 2 Roadmap

Nottinghamshire will enter the second stage of the Roadmap

From Monday 12 April, people in England will see further restrictions eased as we enter Step two of the Roadmap out of lockdown.

Many businesses and activities will be able to reopen including:

  • all non-essential retail
  • hospitality venues that can serve people outdoors 
  • personal care premises such as hairdressers and nail salons
  • public buildings, including libraries and community centres
  • indoor leisure facilities such as gyms (but only for use by people on their own or in household groups)
  • most outdoor attractions and settings including outdoor hospitality venues, zoos, theme parks, and drive-in cinemas
  • self-contained accommodation such as campsites and holiday lets, where indoor facilities are not shared with other households

Wider social contact rules will apply in all these settings to prevent indoor mixing between different households.
