Second ‘lockdown’ in the UK
The government has announced a pre-Christmas ‘circuit breaker’ lockdown in England starting on Thursday 5 November. The aim is to bring COVID-19 case numbers down using a month of increased restrictions, allowing people to travel more safely for the Christmas break. The new restrictions do not apply to the educational activities of schools, colleges and universities that our blended approach of online and face-to-face teaching will continue.
