UK lifts omicron curbs, no masks required in closed spaces
London : England on Thursday ended coronavirus restrictions, including wearing masks in closed spaces.
The number of positive cases in the United Kingdom have dropped drastically in the last two weeks. The restrictions were applied on December 8, after omicron cases increased in the nation.
Face masks were required in all enclosed spaces and, controversially, vaccine documentation also was to enter places such as nightclubs, football grounds and large-scale events.
England previously lifted restrictions on July 19, so-called "Freedom Day", but then introduced new rules as the Omicron wave arrived.
