Plan A

England will move back to Plan A on Thursday 27 January

The Prime Minister has given a statement to Parliament on the progress against the Omicron variant and the review of the Plan B measures.

As a result of progress made, the Prime Minister announced that England can return to Plan A and allow Plan B regulations to expire. From 27 January, mandatory certification will end, although organisations can still choose to use the NHS Covid Pass voluntarily.

He also confirmed that the government is no longer asking people to work from home and that once regulations lapse on 26 January, wearing face masks will no longer be a legal requirement.

As from today, the government no longer requires face masks in school classrooms. In addition, the Department for Education will shortly remove national guidance on their use in communal areas from 27 January.

The government will also ease further restrictions on visits to care homes and set out plans in the coming days.

He concluded by explaining that the self-isolation regulations will expire on 24 March and that he would not expect to renew them and could even bring that date forwards if the data allowed it. In advance of that, the government will set out their long-term strategy for living with Covid-19.
