Testing could end before half-term holidays

Monday, Jan 17, 2022 0

Plan B Covid restrictions may soon be lifted as the Covid rate dropped to its lowest level since December.

It could result in the scrapping of testing for returning vaccinated travellers.

It would end the requirement for a lateral flow test two days after returning from overseas, giving the travel industry a boost for the busy half-term holidays.

The Telegraph said Grant Shapps is in favour of finally scrapping testing before the February holidays.

It claims a decision is expected by 26 January.

"We are looking at removing all Covid tests for vaccinated travellers by the end of January, which is likely to coincide with the review of the plan," The Times reported citing a government source.

The Plan B rules were imposed as the highly transmissible Omicron variant swept across the country.

Plan B requires working from home if possible, and wearing of face masks.
