PM to Announce Autumn-Winter Covid Plan

Tomorrow the Prime Minister will be giving a statement on the Government's plan for managing Covid-19 during this Autumn and Winter.

The expected announcements:

• Winter vaccine booster programme plans.
• Those who are immunocompromised will be offered a third primary dose - separate to the booster programme.
• Plans to repeal powers in England that are no longer necessary from the Coronavirus Act, including powers to close-down sectors of the economy and disrupt education. Some powers will be retained, including measures on sick pay, directing schools to remain open and powers to get the NHS emergency resources.
• Legal requirements will remain for someone to isolate if they test positive.
