Restrictions imposed in England, in the wake of the Omicron variant, in December will be removed from Thursday, January 27th it has been confirmed.
Plan B restrictions, which were introduced before Christmas, amid the spread of the Omicron variant, include guidance to work from home, Covid passes and mandatory masks wearing in shops and on public transport.
The prime minister also said the legal requirement to self-isolate if you have COVID remains in place for now.
However, he claimed there will "soon come a time" when this will no longer be the case and those with the virus will instead simply need to be "careful and considerate of others".
The laws on self-isolation expire on 24 March and Boris Johnson says he expects "not to renew them" on this date and would support bringing this date forward if supported by the data.
