Boris Johnson introduces new coronavirus rules that will impact fans at Leeds United games

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has introduced new coronavirus rules that will impact fans at Leeds United games.

Wednesday, 8th December 2021, 7:01 pm

Due to the rising number of cases of the Omicron variant, the PM has executed a 'plan B' of restrictions that includes new rules on gaining access to nightclubs and other large venues where large crowds gather.

As of from Wednesday, December 15, the NHS Covid pass will be required to gain entry to such events, including to sporting events with crowds of 10,000 or more.

Two vaccine doses will be regarded as fully-vaccinated but that is to be kept under review.

A negative lateral flow will also be acceptable.

From Friday, the legal requirement to wear a face mask will be extended to most indoor public venues in England, for example cinemas and theatres but there will be exemptions for matters such as eating.
