N332 is sharing a COVID-19 update.
The UK Secretary of State for Transport, Grant Shapps, has tweeted that from 4am on Monday 19th July, UK residents returning to England from Amber List countries (e.g. Spain) will no longer have to do the 10 day quarantine.
Making a statement on international travel in the Commons, the transport secretary said those who have received two jabs and those aged under 18 will no longer have to self-isolate for 10 days after their return to the UK – but will still have to take a PCR test on their second day back.
“They will still be required to take a test three days before returning, the pre-departure test, demonstrating they’re negative before they travel, and a PCR test on or before day two, but they will no longer be required to take a day eight test.”
** It also seems that this only applies to British residents travelling to Spain and back. Not to Spanish residents travelling to the UK…….. **
The UK government’s traffic light system for travel applies to England, with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland able to make their own rules.
However, the rules are broadly the same and previous changes to the lists have been adopted by all four nations.
AS ALWAYS there is contrasting information from politicians. We await confirmation.
Once we have more information we will post.
