Many have questioned the approach, with several concerns being raised regarding education, social distancing rules and infection figues.
Last week we asked our readers: “If you could ask Boris Johnson one question about the Government's new coronavirus guidance, what would it be?”
Many of you responded via social media to voice your thoughts, and raised several questions on the titles of our North East Facebook pages.
Lots of the questions that were asked revolved around sending children back to school, after the Government set out plans to begin a phased reopening of primary schools in England from June 1.
Some asked how it can be considered safe to send their children back to school, especially if they are in the shielded or vulnerable categories.
With businesses also set to reopen, others asked how they are supposed to provide child care when they return to work.
The Government has also issued new guidelines stating that cleaners and nannies are allowed to return to work in peoples’ homes – providing they don’t have coronavirus symptoms.
Our readers therefore asked why members of their own families aren’t allowed to enter their homes, yet people from estate agent companies, which have been allowed to reopen, can.
Another impending rule change is that people entering the UK will have to go into quarantine for a period of time, with the Government still working on details of how to implement the plans.
Yet many asked why quarantine rules for people arriving into the country, or stricter lockdown measures, weren’t introduced sooner.
Regarding the alterations to lockdown rules, which were eased on May 13, readers asked why Scotland and Wales didn’t implement the same strategy.
People are now allowed to leave the house for unlimited exercise and play sport with members of their own household, as long as social distancing is maintained
Readers in the North East asked if this was wise, especially given that the R figure, which measures the rate of infection, is higher in the region.
