  • British Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined his plan for an easing of lockdown measures on Monday including new advice for people to wear face coverings when in crowded places.

    In a change of advice, the British government says people should wear masks covering their mouth and nose in enclosed spaces such as buses and subway trains.

    The about-face comes as part of a plan to gradually lift a nationwide lockdown that was imposed in the U.K. on March 23.

    The road map document outlines a three-stage approach to ending Britain’s lockdown, beginning Wednesday with a relaxing of limits on outdoor exercise and leisure activity.

    If there is no new spike in infections, that will be followed in June by a return to class for some school pupils, the reopening of nonessential shops and the return of televised sports, played behind closed doors.

    A third stage planned for July would see the gradual reopening of restaurants, cafes, pubs, hairdressers and other businesses.

    The plan has put Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s U.K. government at odds with semi-autonomous authorities in Scotland and Wales, who are urging more caution.
