From Tuesday 30 November, face coverings will be mandatory in shops and on public transport and all travellers returning to the UK will require PCR testing.
Temporary and precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the new COVID-19 Omicron variant in the UK will come into force today on Tuesday, the UK government has confirmed.
From 4am Tuesday 30 November, face coverings will be compulsory in shops and other settings such as banks, post offices and hairdressers, as well as on public transport unless individuals are exempt from doing so.
All travellers arriving into the country from 4am on Tuesday 30 November will be required to take a PCR test on or before day 2 and self isolate until they have received a negative test result. These PCR tests can be purchased from private providers. Free NHS tests are not valid for this purpose.
Please may we remind you that face coverings must be worn in the Oakwood Centre. Thank you for your co-operation.
