Face masks will forever be regarded as the visible emblem of the coronavirus pandemic and Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that they will no longer be legally required in England is the news that millions of people there have been waiting for. Freedom Day on July 19 now seems to be a reality within touching distance.

The face coverings were the most personal restriction and their removal will be welcomed by everyone who values autonomy, being able to make a choice without being legally compelled to do something.
