A new variant of COVID-19 has recently hit the UK, named Omicron. It originates from South Africa and while there are only 22 confirmed cases across the country at this point, due to the virus’ infectious nature, this could escalate quickly.

As such, testing is paramount – it’s estimated that around one in three people who contract COVID-19 are asymptomatic. This means that you could potentially pass on the virus without even being aware of its presence in your body.

From November 30th, face masks have been made mandatory in shops and public transport – however, there are no guidelines for their usage in public houses, libraries or other establishments as of yet.

Regardless of your vaccinated status, you will be required to self-isolate for ten days if you come into contact with someone who is suspected of having the Omicron variant. If you think you may have it, you will also need to self-isolate if you test positive.
