England also restores measures for Covid! Boris Johnson: Who can work from home

Boris Johnson has confirmed that the government is switching to coronavirus plan B due to the rapidly increasing cases of the Omicron variant.

Speaking at a press conference on Downing Street, the Prime Minister issued new guidelines for Britons to work from home where possible by Monday.

Face masks will also be mandatory from Friday in most enclosed public spaces, such as cinemas, theaters with exceptions for some venues such as pubs and restaurants.

Johnson added that vaccine passports or negative tests will be required for nightclubs and other places with large numbers of people as of Wednesday.

He also announced that daily testing would be introduced instead of isolation for those who have been in contact with infected persons.

The prime minister stressed that Plan B measures "do not constitute a deadlock" and called on people to "continue" with Christmas shows and celebrations.

He said his goal was for the restrictions to take effect "no later than early January and possibly earlier".
