The premier will also announce that picnics in parks will be allowed, as will outdoor meetings in pubs from April, it is claimed.
Boris Johnson is due to set out more about the government’s plans to ease Covid restrictions on February 22, however details have already begun to emerge.
Meanwhile, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told one media outlet this morning “our priority will be schools.”
He added: “It is absolutely right that until we change the rules we need full compliance.”
