The online only COVID-19 Response: Autumn and Winter Plan 2021 states that if the data suggests the National Health Service is likely to come under unsustainable pressure, the Government will implement its prepared ‘Plan B’ for England. This will include measures that can help control transmission of the virus and legally mandating face coverings in certain settings. The exact settings will be announced if Plan B is implemented.
