Remaining Covid rules to end in England this month

Friday, 10 Feb, 2022 0

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he plans to end all remaining Covid restrictions in England earlier than planned.

‘If the current encouraging trends in the data continue’ the last restrictions will be removed a month earlie, Johnson said at PMQs.

The restrictions were originally set to expire on 24 March.

“It is my intention to return on the first day after the half-term recess to present our strategy for living with Covid,” Johnson said.

“It is my expectation that we will be able to end the last domestic restrictions – including the legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive – a full month early.”

Currently face coverings are required on London transport and fully vaccinated people with Covid can leave isolation after five days if they test negative two days in a row.

Downing Street said the removal of isolating would be replaced by guidance, and it urged people not to go to the workplace if they are positive be Covid-19.

Some unions and health experts slammed the move as ‘too far, too soon.’

The news will pile pressure on Scotland and Wales to follow suit.
