Grant Shapps has said there won’t be any more emergency measures in response to other COVID variants in the future, ‘unless in extreme circumstances’.

The Transport Secretary tweeted to say: “Now we’ve got on top of Omicron it’s time to #livewithcovid.

“I understand the huge personal and economic costs of border measures.

“So we won’t implement emergency measures in response to new COVID variants unless in extreme circumstances.

“The Feb 11 relaxation of travel rules was a huge boost for all.

He added: “We’re now preparing to stand down our quarantine hotels, have simplified the passenger locator form & will go further, and have a toolkit of proportionate measures we can deploy to tackle new threats.”
