(News 1st); The UK Government stated that face coverings and COVID-19 passes are no longer legally required in England.
The UK Health Secretary, Sajid Javid said that the measures could be lifted due to the vaccine rollout’s success and a better understanding of COVID-19 treatments.
Mask-wearing would now be “a matter of personal judgment”, he said.
Moreover, international media said passengers would be expected to wear face coverings. However, reports said they would encourage, not force, customers, to comply.
