Omicron variant

This new variant was first found in South African 10 days ago. So far, nine cases of the Omicron variant have been found in the UK, one of which is in central London. In response, the Government has put in some temporary regulations to try to control its spread. From 30 November:


● Face coverings are a legal requirement in shops and on public transport or a fine of £200 will be issued.

● Those who have come into contact with an individual who may have been infected with the Omicron variant will need to self-isolate, even if you are fully-vaccinated.

● International arrivals from non-red list countries, who are fully vaccinated will need to isolate at home and take a PCR test on or before day 2 following their arrival. Permission to leave isolation only if this test result is negative. If the test result is positive, full 10-day isolation is required.

● Secondary school children should wear masks in the school’s communal areas.

The government will review these measures in 3 weeks’ time.
