BANK holidays are valued in the North East and North Yorkshire, but Covid meant we couldn’t make the most of it last year

The Prime Minister and the scientific advisors hope to return to some kind of normality by the spring of 2021, just in time for Easter

While there will likely still be rules in place to keep Covid cases down, the approval and launch of vaccines has filled many with optimism and planning activities to make up for lost time with friends and family

The region’s nocturnal economy also sees a daily boost on sunny holidays as residents flock to beer gardens, which are urgently needed after months of closure under the tiered Covid system and closings

They are also perfect for exploring the North East and North Yorkshire countryside and coastal beauty spots The beaches of Seaburn, Roker and Saltburn are close by

Roseberry Topping, North Yorkshire Moors and Northumberland are also on the doorstep and are great for hiking and country walks

Boris Johnson also said he hoped that by spring 2021 many coronavirus restrictions would have “gone back in the past”

“If we are right and the vaccination program has the positive effects we believe possible, and I stress that those are ifs, many of the non-pharmaceutical interventions will clearly go back in the past,” he said

The Prime Minister added that the public may need to continue “basic disciplines” like washing hands and wearing masks “for a while afterwards”

Professor Stephen Powis, National Medical Director of the NHS England, reiterated his optimism for spring and “summer” when asked about a schedule for when people could go to restaurants or book a vacation

He said, “Like everyone else, I hope that when we get into spring and summer, we can return more to these normal ways of life

“But right now there is no doubt that the infection rates are high The NHS is under a lot of pressure, especially in London and parts of the South East, where the broadcast of the new variant has been accelerated, and of course in the rest of the country we live in. I also see pressure and of course the new variant has started to spread ”
