COVID passes and mandatory face mask rules to end in England

Covid passes both dropped.The measures were introduced in December to combat the spread of the Omicron variant of coronavirus, but were expected to end later this month.As it stands, face masks are required in cinemas and theatres, and people need to show proof they’re fully vaccinated or provide a negative test when visiting clubs, indoor unseated venues with more than 500 people, unseated outdoor venues with more than 4,000 people and any event with more than 10,000 people.Those restrictions are all set to end on January 26, with Health Secretary Sajid Javid saying “we must learn to live with Covid in the same way we live with flu”.Today marks the start of the next chapter in our fight against Covid-19. The data shows Omicron is in retreat, but it’s not the end of the road.The best step we can all take is to get vaccinated and I want to thank the staff, volunteers and everyone who’s come forward so far.

If we have learnt anything from this pandemic, it is that we must not get complacent and undo all our hard work and sacrifices.”If we've learnt anything from this pandemic, it's that we must not get complacent and undo all our hard work and sacrifices.

Face masks will remain a condition of carriage on @TfL services. #WearAMask
