The new ‘Living with covid’ strategy aims to manage COVID-19 like other respiratory illnesses, and has removed most domestic restrictions in England

From Thursday 24 February, workers no longer had a legal duty to self-isolate if they test positive for COVID-19, and will not be legally obliged to tell their employers when they test positive. The legal requirement to test for 7 days after coming into contact with someone who has tested positive has also ended.

From 1 April, free testing for the general public will stop and the existing Working Safely guidance will be replaced with new public health guidance. Employers will no longer be required to explicitly consider COVID-19 in their risk assessments, but they should still consider the needs of employees at greater risk from COVID-19, including those whose immune system means they are at higher risk of serious illness.
