United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a national lockdown in the UK to stem what he’s called the “biggest threat” the country has faced for decades.
To ensure compliance with the Government’s instruction to stay at home, they will:
- close all shops selling non-essential goods, including clothing and electronic stores and other premises including libraries, playgrounds and outdoor gyms, and places of worship;
- stop all gatherings of more than two people in public – excluding people you live with;
- stop all social events, including weddings, baptisms and other ceremonies, but excluding funerals.
The lockdown will last for at least three weeks, but could be extended.
