Covid: Face masks to be compulsory in England from Tuesday, says Javid

BBC News says Health Secretary Sajid Javid has said face masks will be compulsory in shops and on public transport in England from Tuesday in response to the new Omicron variant.

It brings England in line with other parts of the UK. The PM also announced earlier that PCR tests would be required for all overseas arrivals.

Arrivals from 10 new red list countries will need to quarantine for 10 days.

MPs are due to vote on confirming the measures after they come into force.

The government has stopped short of extending vaccine passports in England and issuing advice to work from home, which are part of its Plan B – a contingency plan if intervention on Covid is needed to protect the NHS.
