After a crunch meeting reviewing the latest Omicron data, the PM decided not to introduce any further restrictions for the end of 2021.

Among these measures is the return to work from home guidance, vaccine passports in a number of settings including football matches and mask mandates for shops and public transport.
No restrictions are in place for pubs and restaurants.
