What has changed?


As of December 10th 2021, the government has announced that England is moving to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.


This means the following guidance is in place:


  • Face coverings are required by law in most indoor settings.
  • From 13 December office workers who can work from home should do so.
  • From 15 December, certain venues and events will be required by law to check that all visitors aged 18 years or over are fully vaccinated, have proof of a negative test in the last 48 hours, or have an exemption.
