Beginning January 27, 2022, England will no longer require COVID vaccine passports for entry into certain public places and events. They also are ending mask mandates, including those for schoolchildren. Work-from-home requirements are also being dropped.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the abrupt change in COVID-19 policies to cheers and applause from House of Commons members. He also is dropping testing rules for vaccinated UK-bound travelers.
Only Britain’s health care workers will still be under a vaccine mandate.
