Boris Johnson: Keep Your Distance Until November to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus
The rule to keep a distance to prevent the spread of the coronavirus will continue to apply in Great Britain for months to come.
British Prime Minister Johnson says he hopes that it will be possible to delete this measure “at the earliest in November”.
Johnson further said that it would be easy for municipalities, for example, to lock public spaces in the event of an outbreak.
As of Saturday, local authorities will have more powers for a local lockdown, including the cancellation of events. It is essential that they can respond more quickly, the Prime Minister said.
The advice to work from home will expire on August 1. It is then up to employers to determine how and where staff can work safest, British media report.
And from October onwards, spectators can watch sports matches in stadiums.
