GOOD SHOW, OLD CHAP: England Ends All COVID Protocols, Including Passports, Mandates and Work Restrictions

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced an end to England’s Plan B COVID protocols that were introduced during the omicron spike. England will also do away with self-isolation by the end of March, Johnson announced.

“From tomorrow we will no longer require face masks in classrooms and the Department for Education will shortly remove national guidance on their use in communal areas,” Johnson told the Commons.

“In the country at large we will continue to suggest the use of face coverings in enclosed or crowded spaces, particularly when you come into contact with people you don’t normally meet, but we will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one.”
