As the cases of covid-19 infections keep increasing daily, it is more apparent the need for stricter measures to help curb further loss of life. To do so, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced tougher restrictions for the nation.
Starting from January 6th, a new lockdown takes effect which urges all citizens to “stay at home” in efforts to help control the spread.
However, people will be allowed to leave their homes when it’s impossible to work from home, to go shipping for essentials, for medical appointments, or to provide care. People are also allowed to leave their home to exercise which may include one other person outside of their household, support or childcare bubble.
The PM also announced that all schools and colleges should move to online learning from tomorrow 5th January until half term in mid-February. Although this excludes children of key workers and vulnerable students.
He also made mention of “alternative arrangements” for exams this summer, saying it will be unfair for all exams to go ahead as usual.
Ending his speech, PM Johnson said: “Thanks to the miracle of science, not only is the end in sight, but we know exactly how we will get there. But for now I’m afraid you must once again stay at home, protect the NHS, and save lives.”
Please Stay Home and Stay Safe.
