Covid Rules – UK

The Prime Minister has announced that he intends to remove England's remaining Covid restrictions at the end of this month.  The news was positively welcomed by the travel and hospitality industry.

Rules are also being relaxed across Scotland and Wales, and Northern Ireland's Health Minister says he wants to remove most remaining curbs this week.

Current Covid restrictions are due to expire in England on 24 March.

Boris Johnson has now told MPs that the remaining domestic rules would end a month early "provided the current encouraging trends in the data continue".

This would remove the requirement for people to self-isolate if they have Covid symptoms or test positive.

He said that the Government would outline its new strategy when Parliament returns from recess on 21 February, and would expect to lift the rules later that week.
