The PM will hold a cabinet meeting to update ministers on how the government will slowly ease restrictions for certain sectors.

Market stalls, car dealerships and garden fetes will reopen from June, the prime minister is set to announce next week.
Sky News has confirmed that Boris Johnson plans to ease restrictions on open-air activities, with National Trust parks also expected to be allowed to open from next month as long as indoor sections stay closed.

The PM will hold a cabinet meeting on Monday to update ministers on how the government will slowly ease the coronavirus lockdown for certain sectors in England.

He will also discuss giving the green light for some non-essential stores to open.
While no changes are expected before June 1, it is understood there will be guidance and advice relating to which shops and attractions can open under step two of Mr Johnson’s roadmap to a ‘new normal’.

In the coming days he is expected to announce the easing of open-air restrictions for the public, as well as provide an update on the new trace and test system, give an announcement on schools, and provide more detail on how the government will unlock the nation.

The new test and trace system is set to launch next week, with 25,000 contact tracers recruited.

A Number 10 spokesperson said the rollout of the test and trace system will mean that “in time, lockdown will no longer be necessary for the vast majority of the public and instead it will be possible for there to be a targeted lockdown for a small number of people”.
