The government has announced that the measures put in place under Plan B in England will be lifted. This means:
- Workers are no longer asked to work from home if they can. Employers should talk to their workers to agree arrangements to return to the workplace.
- From 27 January, there is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering. People are still advised to wear one in crowded and indoor spaces where they may come into contact with people they do not normally meet.
- From 27 January, venues and events are no longer required by law to check visitors’ NHS COVID Pass. They can still choose to use the NHS COVID Pass on a voluntary basis.
You can find out more about these changes and what they mean for your business, on the GOV.UK website.
