Reopening England’s schools is step towards normality, PM Johnson says
LONDON --- The reopening of England's schools to all pupils on Monday will mark the first step back towards normality, and is only possible because of the efforts of the public to bring COVID-19 infection rates down, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.   Johnson has announced a roadmap for lifting lockdown measures that sees schools open first, followed in later stages by the gradual easing of restrictions on mixing with other people and the re-opening of non-essential shops and other venues.   In the final stage, which will take place no earlier than June 21, the government hopes to remove all remaining legal limits on contact with others.   "...Keep on reading: Reopening England’s schools is step towards normality, PM Johnson says
