READERS have been responding to the Government's 'Plan B' response to the Omicron spread coming to an end.

Commuters across the country are set to travel in to work for the first time since Plan B measures to curb the spread of Omicron were axed on Wednesday.

The Prime Minister told MPs in the Commons that work-from-home guidance would be dropped immediately and rules on face coverings in classrooms would also be scrapped in England from Thursday.

Other measures including the requirement to wear face masks on public transport and in shops will end next Thursday.

The legal requirement for people with coronavirus to self-isolate will also be allowed to lapse when the regulations expire on March 24, and that date could be brought forward.

Readers had their share of opinions on the rules changing.

Terry Harvey-Chadwick was hesitant to get on board: "While I really really want there to be an end to it, I'm thinking that the Tory "government" just saying sod it and dropping everything is a big mistake.

"But then again, having a Tory "government" in the first place is a bad mistake."

Paul Sharpe had a question: "End of emergency now and arguably never been an emergency.

"Does that mean end of emergency use authorisation for vaccines, asking for millions of concerned people?"

Kath Moore said: "Need to get back to normal, after two years of lockdowns and restrictions, that the government themselves didn’t follow, they need to start treating Covid like any other virus/cold/flu.

"Yes some people will require hospital and some will unfortunately not survive but that happens with flu every year and nothing is said about it.

"We have to learn to live with it and not let it rule our lives."
