Schools and markets began their phased reopening on Monday, amid an easing of coronavirus restrictions in the UK.
Children in nursery, reception, year 1 and year 6, are the first ones to return to school, in what will be a phased reopening, as announced by the UK government.
In London, at the Bevington and Oxford Gardens primary schools, parents who chose to bring their children to school commented on the reopening.
«Being at school, or being with mum and dad at the supermarket or walking around outside of the home, I think the risks are pretty much everywhere,» said a parent.
«I have got a little boy as well, and he is six, and when he goes back he's going to start running up to see his friends I don't know how they do it, but they can only do the best that they possibly can anyway,» said another parent.
London's iconic Camden Market was among the markets reopening on Monday.
The commercial director of Camden explained that the market will be following a phased opening, which will include non-essential retail on June 15, and be later followed on by restaurants, salons and bars.
«We have taken all the precautions we could to ensure social distancing within the market, from counters being implemented at the entrances to monitor how much foot fall we have in the market, to social distancing stickers. We have free sanitising stations to all our customers, we encourage them to wear masks, just like our traders,» she said.
