Boris Johnson upbeat about 19 July easing of restrictions

Prime minister Boris Johnson says he’s hoping England will return to as close as ‘normal’ as possible on 19 July. 

The PM has said he will set out what step four of the lockdown roadmap will look like within the next few days. 

He said some “extra precautions” may still be needed and urged patience over the possibility of scrapping isolation for whole bubbles in schools. 

The PM also said double jabs would be “a liberator” for foreign travel.

Boris Johnson was asked whether social distancing and masks would be removed on 19 July. 

“I know how impatient people are to get back to total normality, as indeed am I,” he said.

“But I think I’ve said it before, we’ll be wanting to go back to a world that is as close to the status quo, ante-Covid, as possible. Try to get back to life as close to it was before Covid.

“But there may be some things we have to do, extra precautions that we have to take, but I’ll be setting them out.”

Asked about reports that fully-vaccinated people may be able to travel from amber-list countries without quarantining by 26 July, 

The PM was asked about foreign travel for fully-vaccinated people from amber list countries without the need for quarantining by 26 July. 

“Everybody who is frustrated about travel over the summer – double jabs will be a liberator.

“I want travel to be possible but I’ve got to stress that this year will not be like every other year, because of the difficulties with Covid. People shouldn’t expect it will be completely hassle-free.”
