Boris Johnson said: "We will also extend the requirement to wear a face-covering to other indoor settings.such as museums, galleries, cinemas and places of worship".

"I've said throughout the pandemic that there would be fresh outbreaks", Johnson said at a news conference, asked if there could be a surge in infections.

He said this would mean "a greater police presence to ensure face coverings are being worn where this is required".

However, he warned it was important to keep up "discipline and our focus".

The United Kingdom has announced a delay in rolling back coronavirus lockdown restrictions in England.

"The government has informed racing's leaders in the past hour that it has withdrawn permission for a pilot event involving customers, to proceed at Goodwood tomorrow (Saturday)", read a joint statement from the British Horse Racing Authority, Racecourse Association and Goodwood Racecourse. "So from midnight tonight, people from different households will not be allowed to meet each other indoors in these areas". "Unless people follow the rules and behave safely, we may need to go further".


"I don't want to tell people to spend less time with their friends". They will have to wait at least another two weeks, he said.

"This is how we will avoid any return to a national lockdown".

"With those numbers creeping up, our assessment is that we should squeeze that brake pedal... in order to keep the virus under control", Boris Johnson said during the Downing Street briefing. We've made huge progress together.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Friday that a relaxation of lockdown rules in England set for August 1 will be postponed by at least two weeks as the rate of coronavirus' transmission across the country rises.

"On Saturday August 1, you'll remember, we had hoped to reopen a number of the higher-risk settings that had remained closed, and today I'm saying we're postponing those changes for at least a fortnight", Johnson said.

"That is what is happening today, that is what the Prime Minister has just announced is actually by going in stages you can stop at certain points and say "actually this is a perfectly sensible thing to think about but looking at the data now this does not look like a sensible step to take at this point in time".
