The UK government has now advised that all UK schools, colleges, sixth forms and higher education institutions are to close at the end of Friday 20th March 2020, until further notice, to fight coronavirus. Whilst it has not issued any ban on public gatherings of any size either indoors or outdoors at this stage, the advice is to avoid non-essential contact with others, including going to sporting events, pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues.

What is going on with Exams?
In England, all exams in May and June have been cancelled, including GCSEs, A-levels and primary school national curriculum tests known as Sats.
Mr Williamson told the Commons on Wednesday: “I can confirm we will not go ahead with assessments or exams and that we will not be publishing performance tables for this academic year.
“We will work with the sector and [the exams watchdog] Ofqual to ensure children get the qualifications that they need.”
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will make a decision on exams in the days to come.
MyRevision will keep you posted on the latest changes.
