What did we learn from today’s press conference?
Plan B will be enforced
Plan B is the next step in managing the spread of Covid, with a return of mandatory facemasks, vaccine passports for events and large venues and work from home guidance returning.
Mr Johnson said the guidance will be reintroduced for working from home from Monday, with businesses to discuss this week how best to transition.
He said: “We will reintroduce the guidance to work from home. Employers should use the rest of the week to discuss working arrangements with their employees but from Monday you should work from home if you can.
“Go to work if you must but work from home if you can.
“I know this will be hard for many people but by reducing your contacts in the workplace, you will help slow transmission.”
Facemasks will be mandatory indoors at most public venues including theatres and cinemas from Friday.
Vaccine passports will be brought in for large scale venues.
The Prime Minister said: “Will also make the NHS COVID pass mandatory for entry into nightclubs and venues where large crowds gather, including unseated indoor venues with more than 500 people, and seated outdoor venues with more than 4,000 people and any venue with more than 10,000 people.”
