The key things you need to know are:
Masks are no longer required to be worn in retail stores by customers or employees with effect from midnight, Monday 12 September 2022. Masks must continue to be worn in any health care setting: hospitals, pharmacies, visiting your GP or at rest homes.
Household contacts no longer need to self-isolate if they test negative for COVID-19. People who test positive for COVID-19 still need to isolate at home for seven days. It is recommended that household contacts test daily before going about their day.
The COVID-19 Leave Support Scheme Payment remains in place for people with COVID-19 who are required to isolate.
