Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Johnson Warns ‘Pandemic Not Over’ as England to Drop Covid Restrictions” – below is their description.
Virtually all remaining coronavirus restrictions will be lifted in England as planned from July 19 despite a recent surge in infections and hospitalizations, Boris Johnson’s government confirmed.
Legal curbs on social distancing and mask-wearing will be replaced by guidelines that simply “expect” people to be cautious and show restraint while the daily number of new infections remains high.
All businesses, including nightclubs, will be allowed to open with no capacity limits — but the government will be “encouraging” them to request proof of vaccination or a negative test from customers when they’re crowded, Health Secretary Sajid Javid told the House of Commons on Monday.
Similarly, the government will also recommend people continue to wear face coverings in crowded areas, such as public transport. There should also be a “gradual” return to the workplace this summer, despite the government no longer instructing people to work from home, Javid said.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
