LONDON, Dec 20 (Reuters) – London's Natural History Museum, a favourite destination for families over the Christmas holidays, said on Monday it was closing until next week due to staff shortages as COVID-19 cases surge in Britain.
"The Museum at South Kensington will be closed from 21-27 December, due to an unforeseen staff shortage," it said on Twitter. "We plan to reopen on Tuesday 28 December. You can also book new tickets for a future date on our website."
London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, declared a "major incident" in the city on Saturday to help hospitals cope with shortages of health workers as well as an increase in admissions.
