Covid Rule Changes – Plan B ends today

The Covid ‘Plan B’ rules are coming to an an end, this means that from today:

You will no longer be required by law to wear a face mask in indoor public places or on public transport. However the government and health services do recommend that you choose to wear one and venues or transport providers may choose to require you wear one.

Covid Passes will no longer have to be shown by law at venues or events – some places/events may choose to ask for them.

Covid is still very prevalent and you are strongly advised to continue to be careful and take measures to protect yourself and others from the virus
