The British media reported on Tuesday that all vaccinated travelers from countries on the “amber list” created by the UK for international travel during the Govt-19 epidemic should be exempted from isolation until July 19.
The Times newspaper reported that ministers will meet this week to pass an order allowing people to leave the amber seats of the three-day traffic light-style system without being isolated for up to 10 days.
At this time, travelers from an amber-listed country, which includes high-end tourist destinations such as Spain, France, the United States and Italy, must isolate themselves when they arrive.
The Sun newspaper reported that Transport Secretary Grand Shops would announce the rule change on Thursday and that passengers would be subjected to a test before returning to the UK and a PCR test on the second day of their return.
On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined plans for the final phase of the easing Disabling Covit-19 in the UK including guidelines on social distance and face care and the results of official work-at-home counseling. The government did not immediately comment on Wednesday.
British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airlines and Heathrow Airport are expected to begin checking the vaccination status of travelers arriving in the UK this week in an effort to persuade the government to drop the isolation of vaccinated passengers as much as possible.
