Travelers arriving in England from December 15 can leave their quarantine after five days by showing a COVID-19 negative test report, the government said.
As of December 15, travelers arriving into England will have to self-isolate just five days instead of the current 14 under a new testing strategy announced by the UK government.
All international arrivals from destinations absent from England’s travel corridor list will have the option to take a Covid-19 test after being in quarantine for a shorter period.
“Our new testing strategy will allow us to travel more freely, see loved ones and drive international business,” says UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.
“By giving people the choice to test on day five, we are also supporting the travel industry as it continues to rebuild out of the pandemic.”
