All schools in Scotland and Wales to be closed by Friday

All schools in Scotland and Wales are set to be closed by Friday, Nicola Sturgeon has warned this could last until the end of the Summer term

There is speculation that England could follow, with Boris Johnson tell MPs that further decisions would be taken “imminently”.

There is speculation that similar measures could be announced in England over COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the Commons during Prime Minister’s Questions that further decisions on school closures were “to be taken imminently”.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has warned that people should not assume that they will open again until the end of the summer term.

She said the move was necessary because schools have now lost too many staff to continue as normal.

Ms Sturgeon said she wanted to reassure teachers and school staff that the government would work with them as they know what is best for children.
