December Update

On Wednesday 8 December, the Government announced that England would move to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

This means:

  • face coverings are required by law in most indoor settings.
  • office workers who can work from home should do so.
  • certain venues and events will be required by law to check that all visitors aged 18 years or over are fully vaccinated, have proof of a negative test in the last 48 hours, or have an exemption.

Even if you are fully vaccinated, it is still possible to catch and spread Covid-19.

Please visit for all the information (last updated on 9 December 2021) you need on:

  • face coverings
  • working for home
  • required use of NHS Covid Pass
  • international travel
  • Omicron contact and self-isolation

This information applies to residents in all districts.
