Boris Johnson announces England is to go into lockdown from Thursday

Gimme More

England will enter a month-long lockdown from Thursday, Boris Johnson has announced.

Until 2 December, people in England will only be allowed to leave their homes for specific reasons, such as education, work or food shopping.

Mr Johnson, speaking at a Downing Street news conference on Saturday evening, said there was "no alternative" to a second period of national lockdown restrictions.

He said that "no responsible prime minister" could ignore the rising number of coronavirus infections across England.

Mr Johnson warned of a greater number of COVID-19 deaths this winter than during the first wave of the pandemic, in the spring, without tougher measures.

Schools, colleges and universities will remain open while those who cannot work from home, such as construction or manufacturing workers, will be encouraged to continue going to their workplaces.

Pubs, bars and restaurants will close across the country, although they will be able to offer takeaway and delivery services.

Non-essential shops, hairdressers and leisure and entertainment venues will also be shut.

The prime minister said the furlough scheme, which has seen the government pay a proportion of peoples' wages during the COVID-19 crisis but was due to end on Saturday, would now be extended through November.

Different households will be banned from mixing, although support bubbles and childcare bubbles will remain and children will still be able to move between homes if their parents are separated.

Gyms will be shut but people can continue to exercise for unlimited periods outdoors, either with people from their own households or on a one-to-one basis with one person from another household.

People will be able to travel internationally for work, but won't be allowed to go abroad for holidays.

“Schools, colleges and universities will remain open while those who cannot work from home, such as construction or manufacturing workers, will be encouraged to continue going to their workplaces”

“People will be able to travel internationally for work, but won't be allowed to go abroad for holidays.”

Sorry but this doesn’t really sound like a lockdown to me 🤔 It’s again very selective

It's for the best and has been recommended, it's better than letting the virus spread insanely across the population.

A lot of other countries are doing it and it is a responsible move, but should have been done WAY earlier.

imagine if people said this during WW1. there's literally ppl being slaughtered in china and children starving in yemen, yet, we can't stay in our homes for a month :smh:

also depression is real and an issue but it's not any more important than covid-19 and health officials have clearly done a cost-benefit analysis to even propose lockdowns because in the long-term it will benefit us.

I knew this was coming! Tbh, it's needed but i just don't understand how they can encourage people to eat out cause they get 50% off food and to mix with other people then wonder why cases are rising again.

You can serve it to me ancient city style

Exactly!! They're wondering why Manchester when in to Tier 3 straight away when letting university students go to accommodation and mix with others! Honestly i know so many people have had it a lot worse but this situation is having such an affect on my mental health.

I don't know when I'm going to have an income again, probably next year.
