What has changed

The government has announced that England will move to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

This means:

  • From 10 December, face coverings will be required by law in most indoor settings.
  • From 13 December office workers who can work from home should do so.
  • From 15 December, certain venues and events will be required by law to check that all visitors aged 18 years or over are fully vaccinated, have proof of a negative test in the last 48 hours, or have an exemption.

If you are hosting an event please read Hampshire County Council and Isle of Wight Public Health Covid-19 Plan B Guidance for Event Organisers

The government has produced a new poster which retail outlets must display regarding the mandatory use of face coverings.
