- The Prime Minister has addressed the UK, unveiling his plan to 'reopen society'.
- He has eased several restrictions, allowing several things that were previously considered non-essential.
- The lockdown stays indefinitely.
The UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced changes to lockdown rules which will take effect starting from Wednesday.
"From this Wednesday we want to encourage people to take more and even unlimited amounts of outdoor exercise," he said as cited by CNN.
"You can sit in the sun in your local park, you can drive to other destinations, you can even play sports but only with members of your own household."
Before the announcement, those not considered key workers were expected to stay at home, being allowed to go outdoors once a day for walking their dogs, shopping and exercise.
"You should go to work if you can't work from home. We've been working to establish new guidelines for employers. Anyone who can't work from home should be actively encouraged to go to work," the PM added, as cited by Feature Story News correspondent Olly Barratt on Twitter.
As Johnson has stated in his address, people will face larger fines for breaking social distancing rules.
A meeting of the Premier League clubs is expected to take place on Monday. As of now, the season is planned to resume behind closed doors in June.
