Schools in UK should remain open during second wave of infections: Gove
LONDON (UK) – Schools in the country should remain open and workplaces, which require their staff to be physically present, should do so in a safe and healthy manner, said senior cabinet minister Michael Gove on Tuesday ahead of an address by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on the new curbs to contain the spread of the second wave of infections.
“We’re trying to strike a balance. We’re trying to say that schools, of course, should remain open. We want workplaces where people have to be in the factory or in the shop in order to do their job to remain open in a COVID-secure way,” he told the BBC.
