Boris Johnson puts brakes on easing UK lockdown
Topics: JOHNSON UK
Johnson said that a planned relaxation on Saturday of the rules allowing high-risk venues such as casinos, bowling alleys and ice rinks to re open will now be postponed for at least two weeks.
He also extended rules making face coverings compulsory in more indoor settings.
“Our assessment is that we should now squeeze that brake pedal in order to keep the virus under control,” Johnson said in a televised press conference.
“We cannot be complacent.” ■
