Each of the UK’s four nations are gradually coming out of lockdown, but each one will be easing restrictions in different stages.
Northern Ireland is taking its next gradual steps out of Covid lockdown from Thursday, while Wales has set out fresh dates for its own easing of restrictions.
It comes after the lifting of some measures in England earlier this week saw friends and family able to meet up again in small groups outside.
The PA news agency sets out what restrictions are being lifted and when other changes are expected in the coming weeks and months across the UK:
– What changed from April 1 in Northern Ireland?
From Thursday in Northern Ireland, up to six people from no more than two households can now meet outdoors in a private garden.
Ten people, from no more than two households, are able to participate in outdoor sporting activities.
Golf courses can reopen, although clubhouses must remain closed, and click-and-collect purchases are also now allowed from garden centres and plant nurseries.
