The new raft of measures will come in from Thursday, but not everything will be the same as the first lockdown. For example:

Schools, colleges and universities will remain open

Workplaces will be told to stay open where people can’t work from home, including in construction and manufacturing

Support bubbles will remain for people who live alone and households made up of single parents and children

Children will be able to move between homes if their parents are separated

Those deemed vulnerable or older people will be told to be especially careful in following the rules and minimise contact with others, but shielding measures won’t be reintroduced
