Schools are pressuring Mr Johnson by announcing face masks and visors for older children.
The Oasis Academy chain of 52 schools today joined several others in saying their students should wear masks to stop the spread of the virus when schools return next week.
It comes as teachers’ unions have called on the government to review its guidelines on face masks in schools, which currently say they should not be worn.

The UK death toll rose to 41,433, with four more deaths reported.
