School pupils in England to wear face masks in classrooms to tackle Omicron – BBC News

Face masks are to be worn in classrooms in England’s secondary schools to reduce the spread of the Omicron Covid variant, the UK government has announced.

The temporary reintroduction of face coverings aims to address concerns about schools remaining open for face-to-face learning in the new term.

Meanwhile, six school staff unions have issued a demand for urgent action to limit the spread of the virus, calling for air-cleaning units, financial support for absence cover, help with on-site testing and a relaxation of the Ofsted inspection regime.
