- Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon set out the country's key dates for easing lockdown, with the "stay at home" advice coming to an end on 2 April
- Northern Ireland will also begin to ease coronavirus restrictions in April; six people from two households will be able to meet in a private garden from 1 April
