In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, the current self isolation policy is people who test positive must isolate themselves for at least seven days. After self isolation, two rapid antigen tests must be performed at an interval of 24 hours - the first not earlier than the sixth day. In Scotland, those who test positive must be isolated for 10 days. Throughout the UK, contacts with positive cases must also be isolated for 10 days if they are not vaccinated.

目前的自我隔离政策是,在英格兰、威尔士和北爱尔兰,新冠检测呈阳性的人们必须自我隔离至少七天。在结束自我隔离之后,必须进行两次相隔24小时的快速抗原检测——第一次不早于第六天。在苏格兰,检测结果呈阳性者必须隔离满10天。而在全英国,阳性病例的接触者如未接种疫苗,也必须隔离10天。

Transportation, the National Health Service (NHS) and schools have been affected by absenteeism due to the rising number of infaction cases and a large number of people in self isolation.

由于持续攀升的病例数字和大量的正在自我隔离中的人群, 交通、国民保健署(NHS)以及学校已经受到缺勤的影响。

Last December, retired teachers were called on to return to their posts to fill the teaching gap that may be caused by teachers' absence in January.

去年12月,退休老师被呼吁重返岗位,以填补1月可能因教师缺勤带来的教学空白。

A British education official said recently: "obviously, there may be very challenging situations in the field of education in the staffing aspect of January. Before the Christmas holidays, schools and universities have seen a large number of staff shortage caused by COVID-19, and the influence of the strain of the Omicron will make the new semester worse."

英国某教育官员近期表示:“很明显,在1月份的员工配备方面,教育领域有可能出现非常具有挑战性的情况。在圣诞假期之前,中小学和大学已经看到了由新冠疫情造成的大量员工缺岗,而奥密克戎变种毒株的影响可能会使新学期的情况更糟。”

Six trade unions representing most educators sent a letter warning the British government: "we need to minimize the interference with education this semester, so as to avoid canceling GCSE, A-level and other examinations for the third consecutive year."

代表大多数教育工作者的六个工会联合致信警告英国政府:“我们这学期需要尽量减少对教育的干扰,以避免连续第三年取消GCSE、A-Level和其他考试。”

In an article published in the Sunday Telegraph on January 2nd, British education secretary Zahawi said that when the new semester begins, "face-to-face teaching will continue to be the expected norm", adding that "the examination will be carried out as planned". However, he also mentioned that the spread of the Omicron variant will "inevitably" force some students and teachers to isolate themselves, which means that "some distance learning will be possible and necessary".

英国教育大臣扎哈维在1月2日的《星期日电讯报》上发表文章称,当新学期开始时,“面对面教学将继续成为预期的常态”,并补充说“考试将按原计划进行”。然而,他也提到,奥密克戎变种毒株的传播将“不可避免地”令一些学生和教师不得不进行自我隔离,这意味着“一些远程学习将是可能且必要的”。
