Britain’s vaccinated travellers no longer required to take COVID-19 tests upon return

Jan 17, 2022: A report by Reuters says Britain’s vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to take COVID-19 tests on their return.

The Times reported that Britain’s vaccinated travellers will be able to go on half-term holidays next month without taking COVID-19 tests on their return.

The report states that Transport Minister Grant Shapps is in favor of abolishing the testing routine for the double jabbed in time for the February break. The change in guidelines will be announced on January 26, the report said.

In addition, the UK government is developing plans that would prevent people from legally isolating themselves after seizing COVID-19, the Telegraph reported on Sunday. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called for the immediate repeal of coronavirus laws as the UK’s COVID-19 cases continue to decline, the report said, adding that official guidance would be maintained but would not result in legal action if ignored.

The report says that work on these projects will be announced in the coming weeks, which is expected to be announced in early spring.

Earlier, the Health Secretary Sajid Javid said COVID-19 self-isolation in England will be cut to five days from seven if someone tests negative twice.
