Boris Johnson Accelerates Plan for Easing Lockdown

LONDON—U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson Friday said he hoped the country could return toward normalcy by Christmas, as he presented a provisional plan to ease coronavirus lockdown restrictions and get British people to return to work.

During a speech where he set out a timetable for removing restrictions, he said employers should have more leeway to ask employees to come back to their workplaces, scrapping previous guidance for people to work at home where possible.
