Easter is likely to be different this year as it takes place while Britain is on lockdown. 2020 has been a bumpy year with intense flooding, strong storms and now a global pandemic which has killed tens of thousands. But have the Easter bank holidays been cancelled?

The next bank holiday in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales will be Good Friday on Friday, April 10.

Monday, April 13 is Easter Monday in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and is also a bank holiday.

The Bank Holiday Easter weekend runs from April 10 to 13, with Easter Sunday on April 12.

Has coronavirus impacted the Easter school holidays?

All schools were closed in March which means that technically children are already at home.

However, some schools remained open for the children of key workers.

The Easter Holidays were due to take place from April 3 to April 20, although dates vary in different schools and areas.

Last week, an anonymous source told The Metro the UK Government had projected Easter Sunday to be the worst day for deaths.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said this estimate is perfectly possible.

In an interview on Friday, the Health Secretary said he would not “steer you away from that” when questioned on the idea that the peak would not take place for nine more days.

But, he added that there are “a lot of things that we do not yet know and this is one of them”.
