A second national lockdown is to start from Thursday with all nonessential shops, restaurants, pubs and leisure facilities to close for at least four weeks, announced Boris Johnson the U.K Prime Minister.
This was told at a press conference on Saturday evening, telling the public that “we must act now to contain this autumn surge”.
People have been told to “stay at home” where possible, but will be allowed to leave their homes for education, medical appointments, to shop for essential goods, and to work if they cannot work from home.
Outdoor exercise will also be permitted, with members of the same household or one person from another household.
People will be allowed to leave home to care for vulnerable people, or to escape injury or harm. Takeaways and deliveries will continue to be allowed.
