Johnson is under pressure to allow more freedom to the millions of people locked in their homes and to offer hope to smaller businesses that have felt the effects of the restrictive measures.
Among the measures that will be proposed is the opening of schools, starting on March 8 in four phases, but so that it will not start working before June 21.
“The threat is still there, but we can take steps because of the success of our health care, which has vaccinated more than 17.5 million people across the UK,” Johnson said.
As of March 29, the provision on staying at home will be abolished, and outdoor gatherings will be limited to 6 people or two different households.
Shops that are not necessary, hairdressers, pubs and museums will have to wait until April 12. Cinemas, hotels, stadiums (with a maximum of 10,000 people) and restaurants will open on May 17, when members of various households will be able to meet indoors.
If the health situation allows it, the measures of restricting social contacts will be abolished on June 21 at the earliest, as well as work from home.
Johnson said that every decision will be made on the basis of scientific data, such as the effectiveness of vaccines and the drop in hospitalizations.
As for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which are part of the United Kingdom, it is up to local authorities to determine how and when to ease the restrictive measures.
Britons who can work from home, wherever possible, will stay in their homes until the government determines the rules on social distancing and the use of masks at work, Johnson added.
