The UK is getting back to life before COVID. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced an end to all remaining COVID-19 restrictions.
“We will remove all remaining domestic restrictions in law. From this Thursday, the 24th of February, we will end the legal requirement to self isolate following a positive test,” Johnson told parliament. “We will end routine contact tracing, and no longer ask fully vaccinated close contacts and those under 18 to test daily for seven days. And we will remove the legal requirement for close contacts who are not fully vaccinated to self-isolate.”
“Until 1 April, we will still advise people who test positive to stay at home,” he continued. “But after that, we will encourage people with Covid-19 symptoms to exercise personal responsibility, just as we encourage people who may have flu to be considerate to others.”
Johnson added that the government would also “expire all temporary provisions of the Coronavirus Act.”
As far as England goes, it’s over.
