Johnson announces end of restrictions from 21 February: no isolation for positives

By the end of February, Covid positives in the UK will no longer be legally required to remain in isolation.

This was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson during Question Time in the House of Commons, but he stressed that the “encouraging trend” that has seen a steady decline in infections and hospital admissions in recent weeks must continue.

The UK Prime Minister said he would present the government’s strategy for dealing with Covid, i.e. treating it as an endemic rather than a pandemic, on 21 February. The current rules to contain the spread of Covid-19 in England are due to expire on 24 March.

Some restrictions, such as the green pass (introduced in December and only for clubs and large events) and the requirement to wear a mask in shops and on public transport, were lifted on 27 January.
