Wearing of Masks no longer Mandatory in UK

The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson has made a big announcement. He said that most of the restrictions imposed in the UK regarding Covid-19 will be lifted next week. He said that from January 24, the time of Covid isolation will be reduced to only five days. However, he also said that the Omicron variant of the coronavirus is not mild, those who have not been vaccinated need to take precautions. Boris also announced the removal of Plan B and going back to Plan A, implemented regarding the Covid restrictions.

Wearing of mask is not mandatory even in closed places

Johnson also told the British Parliament that people would not have to wear masks in closed spaces when working from home and would not have to show a certificate of vaccination when using public places such as nightclubs, shops or public transport. He said that from 20th January 2022 it will not be mandatory to wear masks in UK schools.

Johnson said that this step is being taken after a successful mass booster jab program in the country. Many countries across Europe have ended the winter lockdown. Our scientists believe that the Omicron wave is now at its national peak. We can come back to Plan A because of the way people cooperated in Plan B implemented for Covid.

Boris is facing Political Crisis
