All schools to close from Friday 20th March until further notice.
All UK schools will close indefinitely to staff and most pupils from Friday afternoon until further notice. Wales was first to announce the measure, followed closely by Scotland and Northern Ireland, before the Prime Minister confirmed the move would be nationwide. Johnson said nurseries and private schools would also be asked to close, and exams would not take place in May and June.
The latest set of preventative measures to be put into place to try and delay the spread of the Covid 19 Coronavirus by the UK Government.
With schools, nurseries and colleges all closed for the foreseeable future, it is an ideal time to bring forward those annual deep cleans and sanitising schedules that usually take place throughout the summer.
Cleaning and sanitising of carpets, upholstery as well as touch points throughout public buildings are all essential precautionary measures to help to protect human life as this threat continues.
