Boris Johnson removes most anti-Covid restrictions
While in France, wearing a mask outdoors is once again mandatory, this will no longer be the case in England. Indeed, Boris Johnson has just announced it. Moreover, teleworking will no longer be recommended and access to the most frequented places hardly requires a health pass.
