BORIS Johnson has tonight ruled OUT another lockdown for now - with no plans to shut businesses or schools amid Omicron.
The PM insisted that he will recommend to Cabinet tomorrow the nation should retain Plan B measures of masks, working from home and Covid passes.
And he said it was very unlikely he would have to lock down the entire country again to get a curb on cases thanks to our smashing vaccine rollout.
As omicron is "milder than previous variants" the huge numbers of people catching the virus is not translating into people going into intensive care, the PM said.
Boris Johnson confirms NO national lockdown and says: ‘It’s far from over but we CAN find a way to live with it’
