What time is Boris Johnson’s announcement today, Wednesday, December 8?
Boris Johnson will be making an announcement at 6pm.
It is believed this will be the announcement which sees Plan B restrictions put into place given the rise in Omicron infections.
What will Boris Johnson announce in his speech?
The PM is expected to introduce ‘Plan B’ Covid measures which could see us home working again and making vaccine passports necessary.
Under Plan B all but essential workers will be asked to work remotely like they did between March 2020 and last July’s Freedom Day.
Vaccine passports – which the Government has been planning to introduce – will also be launched for large venues like football matches and nightclubs.

At the moment the definition of fully-vaccinated is two jabs rather than three.
Mandatory face masks – the third prong of the Government’s Plan B – are already in force for shops and public transport after coming in on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, to stem the rising tide of Omicron.
This will likely be extended to all “crowded and enclosed settings” to be determined.
A senior official said it was likely the new measures would be introduced as early as tomorrow morning (December 9) – but Downing St sources stressed “no decisions have been made”.
