Daily Star
And the Daily Star leads with the news that one in five Britons report worse eyesight since lockdown - "coronavision" from too much screen time, it speculates. The paper says it recalls the plight of the prime minister's adviser, Dominic Cummings, who claimed he drove to Barnard Castle to test his poor vision. "Didn't see that Cumming" is the headline.
Daily Express
"A kick in the teeth!" is the verdict of the Daily Express on the BBC's decision to go ahead with ending free TV licences for most over-75s. The paper says BBC bosses were accused of "fleecing" pensioners.
Times
The Times borrows Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden's call to "work out to help out" for its headline, adding that cricket can resume this weekend and amateur football as soon as guidelines are agreed. The paper also says the prime minister intends to ban promotions on unhealthy food after coronavirus convinced him action on obesity was needed.
Daily Mail
"They've sunk our cruises", cries the Daily Mail, however. As other businesses reopen, the paper says the Foreign Office has warned against all travel on cruise ships - a "dramatic intervention" that is a "huge blow" to the travel industry.
Daily Mirror
The Daily Mirror reports on what it calls the "jobs hell at High St icons" as Boots, Burger King and John Lewis announce they are cutting staff. The paper says it brings job losses since the coronavirus crisis began to more than 150,000.
Guardian
The Guardian's lead story takes a wider view, reporting concerns from the World Health Organization that the pandemic is accelerating across the globe. The WHO's head said it has yet to reach its peak and the virus is not under control in most of the world, the paper reports.
Daily Telegraph
Salons are the focus of the Daily Telegraph's front page, as they reopen from Monday and "normality edges closer" - words from Mr Dowden that give the paper its headline. It says there is also a "chink of light" for theatres as the government begins "trials of indoor performances with limited audiences".
Metro
"You'd better shape up", is the instruction on the front of Metro to readers who have been taking it easy during lockdown. Reporting on the reopening on gyms, swimming pools and leisure centres, it says the country can "get back in shape at last".
