British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday announced the government would remove all remaining coronavirus restrictions in England and cut access to free tests as part of its “living with Covid” plan. As part of the plan the government is immediately removing the requirement for staff and children in most education and childcare settings to undertake twice weekly asymptomatic testing while as of April 1 free symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public will end. The government will also, as of that date, no longer recommend the use of voluntary Covid status certification and many of the isolation rules will change, with people with COVID-19 symptoms encouraged to simply exercise personal responsibility in same way as those with flu would be encouraged to be considerate of others.
