GOODBYE RESTRICTIONS?FREE FOR ALLAll remaining Covid restrictions, including a legal self-isolation rule, could be lifted later this month in England, said Boris Johnson.The Prime Minister said he would outline the latest plan when Parliament returns on 21 February from a short recess.The surviving rules, including a legal requirement to self-isolate for at least five days after a positive test, were due to expire on 24 March under plans announced in January.He told MPs: “It is my intention to return on the first day after the half-term recess to present our strategy for living with Covid.”Provided the current encouraging trends in the data continue, it is my expectation that we will be able to end the last domestic restrictions – including the legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive – a full month early.”Downing Street said the law would be replaced with guidance in areas such as when people should go to work.No 10 also indicated an update on remaining travel rules would also be issued later this month.Changes from tomorrow mean fully vaccinated people arriving in the UK will no longer need to take any Covid tests while unvaccinated travellers will avoid isolation but be required to take tests. Everyone at the moment must still complete a passenger locator form.One-in-every-20 people across the UK, 3.3-million, had Covid in the the latest full week analysed by the Office for National Statistics
