      Post Coronavirus, Covid-19.
As of 24 February 2022 the UK government ended all of the mandatory Covid-19 restrictions.
Government guidance places the onus on the individual of what to do with regard to the wearing of masks, sanitizing and maintaining some social distance in crowded areas.
Should you get Covid the recommendation is you isolate for 5 days and only return to normal life when you test negative for two consecutive days.
