The government has announced that the measures put in place under Plan B in December will be lifted in England.

The government has announced that the measures put in place under Plan B in England will be lifted. This means:

  • Workers are no longer asked to work from home if they can. People should talk to their employers to agree arrangements to return to the workplace.
  • From 27 January, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. People are still advised to wear one in crowded and indoor spaces where they may come into contact with people they do not normally meet.
  • From 27 January, venues and events are no longer required by law to check visitors’ NHS COVID Pass. They can still choose to use the NHS COVID Pass on a voluntary basis.
