    • New recommendations are to be introduced from Wednesday the 8th December, to try to stop the coronavirus situation from deteriorating, the government said at a press conference this afternoon.
    • Employers should allow people to work from home if possible, and people travelling on public transport should use masks if buses and trains are crowded. Crowding in general should be avoided.
    • The government also signalled it is looking into extending the vaccine pass programme to gyms and restaurants if the situation deteriorates further.
