All The Covid Rules From April 12, Even Those You’ve Missed

April 12 marks a pretty big day in England’s diary, with lockdown restrictions easing once more and a whole raft of new freedoms allowed.

For many, the date is already firmly in mind, with haircuts and pub outings booked, and that first non-essential shopping trip of 2021 also in the planner.

But there’s far more fun where those came from.

Here’s a full rundown of all the things you’ll be able to do once again from Monday onwards, including the rule changes you might just have missed.

Let’s go shopping

If you’ve been longing to peruse the aisles of your favourite clothes and homeware stores or have a good browse at your local bookshop, you’re in luck. Non-essential shops will be opening once more from Monday April 12.

No longer will you have to order a thousand sizes to your home, then hopelessly navigate the process of online returns. You can now size up that dress or jacket on the hanger, not to mention have a chinwag at the till with your favourite shop assistant.

Masks will still be mandatory (unless you are medically exempt) so if you want to set foot in store, don’t forget your face covering. It’s also worth noting that we’re still urged to minimise the distances we travel wherever possible.

Time for the chop

Whether you’ve gone au naturel in lockdown and now resemble Cousin It or you braved a DIY chop from your partner or housemate that needs rectifying ASAP, the good news is that hairdressers and barbers will be back doing their thing from April 12. The only caveat is that many are booked up already, with backlogs running until June.

For those whose feet look more like Monster Munch, there is also respite on the horizon. You can book in for that much-need mani/pedi as nail salons – and other personal care services – also reopen for business.
