Removal of Plan B Coronavirus measures in England

The UK government announced on 19 January that, with immediate effect, people are no longer asked to work from home.

From 27 January face coverings and the NHS COVID Pass will no longer be required by law in England.

The latest GOV.UK guidance has information on this and also on measures that remain.

HSE’s latest advice on keeping workplaces safe will help you to continue to work safely during the pandemic.

You must still control the risks and review and update your Risk Assessment.  The following workplace controls remain unchanged:

  • Adequate ventilation.
  • Sufficient cleaning.
  • Good hand hygiene.

HSE is continuing to carry out spot checks to ensure workplaces are working safely and following the latest government COVID-19 guidance.
