Those with Covid in England will no longer need to self-isolate, according to PM Boris Johnson.
Mask wearing and Covid passes will also be scrapped in England on March 24th as current regulations expire and are not expected to be extended.
Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are not included in this policy shift.
Boris' brash move comes as the UK recorded almost 94,000 cases of Covid yesterday, a decline from the peak of 218,000 cases recorded on January 8th.
On making the announcement the British PM noted that infections in England are falling, before stating: "time and again this government got the toughest decisions right."
He continued: "There will soon come a time when we can remove the legal requirement to self-isolate altogether, just as we don’t place legal obligations on people to isolate if they have flu."
The self-isolation regulations expire on March 24, at which point I very much expect not to renew them... were the data to allow."
Critics of the Prime Minister have been quick to note that this move is nothing more than a series of populist policies to win back public - and backbencher - support in a move dubbed 'Operation Red Meat'.
