Boris Johnson today said he is lifting Plan B Covid curbs in England as he stepped up the fight for his political life with another ‘Operation Red Meat’ announcement.
The Prime Minister said that ‘from now’ the Government’s work from home guidance will no longer apply.
Meanwhile, Covid passes and compulsory face masks will be axed from next Thursday after the regulations underpinning Plan B expire.
The PM said that the Government will still ‘suggest’ to people to wear face coverings in certain ‘enclosed or crowded places’ but ‘we will trust the judgement of the British people’.
Face masks will no longer be required in school classrooms in England from tomorrow.
The PM also said that there will ‘soon come a time when we can remove the legal requirement to self-isolate altogether’ as he said the change will be made by March 24 at the latest.
