Government moves to Plan B
The government has announced that England will move to ‘Plan B’, which includes:
- From 10 December, face coverings will be required by law in most indoor settings.
- From 13 December office workers who can work from home should do so.
Please note the following extract from the latest government guidance, which is not yet introduced but may be significant in the near future:
"The Government has announced its intention to replace self-isolation with daily testing for some contacts of people who have tested positive for COVID-19. Further details will be set out shortly. Until then, current rules continue to apply and you must self-isolate if instructed to do so by NHS Test and Trace. This remains the law."
