Prime Minister confirms move to Plan B in England - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
Move to Plan B confirmed as Omicron spreads across UK, with early analysis suggesting cases could be doubling at a rate of as little as 2.5 to 3 days
- Face masks to become compulsory in most public indoor venues, other than hospitality – this includes places of worship
- NHS Covid Pass to be mandatory in specific settings, using a negative test or full vaccination via the NHS Covid Pass
- Vaccines and testing remain our best lines of defence
- People asked to work from home if they can
The guidance states that as there is now demonstrated community transmission of Omicron, the intention is to introduce daily contact tests for contacts of confirmed positive cases instead of the ten-day self-isolation period but there is no date for implementation yet or detail about how this will work .
