Easy to read report: Roadmap out of lockdown

Before each step of the plan proceeds, four tests must be met:

  1. The Covid-19 vaccination programme continues successfully 

  2. There is evidence that vaccines are working to reduce hospitalisations and deaths in those that are vaccinated

  3. Infection rates do not risk a surge in people going to hospital which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS

  4. Any new Covid-19 Variants of Concern which change the Government's assessment of the risks.
