Parents have been asked to wear masks when dropping off and picking up their children from city and county schools.
Both Leicester City and Leicestershire County Councils have issued the advice on behalf of local public health bosses asking parents to wear a face-covering as they get ‘close to the school’.
Letters have been sent home by headteachers.
A Leicestershire County Council spokesperson said: “We have requested that all parents and carers across the county wear face coverings when dropping off and picking up their children from school.
"Children’s safety is a priority and we have taken this decision to further support children’s return to education and help to reduce the spread of coronavirus."
