The Government has published the ‘COVID-19 Response: Autumn and Winter Plan 2021’ to sustain the progress made through the vaccination programme, avoiding the economic and social restrictions deployed in the past. However, in the event of unsustainable pressure on the National Health Service, we have set out a range of measures under ‘Plan B’. We will monitor the data closely, taking action to support and protect the NHS when necessary.
