Updated UK’s remaining Covid restrictions

Most of the remaining Covid restrictions in the UK come to an end on Monday.

However, a few rules will remain in place for now in Wales and Scotland.

How are the rules changing in Wales?

Masks are no longer required in shops or on public transport – although they are recommended, but they are compulsory in health and social care settings.

The legal requirement for people to self-isolate if they have Covid has also ended – although doing so is strongly advised.

Wales will maintain some testing measures until the end of June:

  • free lateral flow tests (LFTs) for people with symptoms
  • contact tracing will continue

After the end of June, free LFTs won’t be available and contact tracing and self-isolation support payments will end.

What are the rules in Scotland?

Scotland has lifted most legal restrictions, but face coverings are still required on public transport and in some indoor settings.

This will be reviewed before 2 April, and is expected to become guidance shortly afterwards.

Free Covid tests will remain available in Scotland until the end of April, although the rules around who should test, and when, will change.

From 1 May:

  • people with symptoms will no longer need to test
  • instead they will be advised to stay at home until they feel better
  • physical test sites will close and contact tracing will end

What is the situation in England?

The government set out its “Living with Covid” plan earlier this year.

From 1 April:

What are the rules in Northern Ireland?

The government recommends that face masks are still worn in certain places, such as enclosed public spaces and health and social care settings.
