UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is aiming to win back favor by announcing the end of all plan B COVID restrictions that were imposed in December when omicron emerged. Beginning on January 26, those in the UK will no longer be forced to hide behind a mask. “From tomorrow we will no longer require face masks in classrooms and the Department for Education will shortly remove national guidance on their use in communal areas,” Johnson told the Commons on Wednesday.
Johnson stated that the government will continue to suggest facial coverings, but will FINALLY “trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise [sic] anyone who chooses not to wear one.” Allowing the people to take back control of their health and lives is a small request that certainly helps boost Boris’ declining approval rating. As always, the rules can change at any minute, but the UK is finally on the right path in terms of COVID mandates.
