***TRAVEL NEWS Sep. 21 2021 . News changes daily so do ask any questions. Information from current government, Visit Britain, and media .
FROM OCT 4 ENGLAND is OPEN to fully vaccinated adults (children under 18 exempt) from all except “red list” countries. ( see below). No quarantine required. No pre- arrival testing needed. From later in October tests 2 days after arrival will become the simpler lateral flow test rather than the current PCR test.(date not given)
Current govt. reports say that testing will be scrapped altogether , relying on vaccination proof only. When ? Probably later this year…..
* RED LIST : most of Latin America from Mexico south; most of southern Africa ; ( google “UK red list “)
WHAT HAS CHANGED IN 2021 IN UK’s MANAGEMENT OF COVID 19 ? All figures approximate
ANSWER : VACCINATIONS in UK and MANY OTHER COUNTRIES. 82% of UK adults are fully vaccinated and 93% have had their first jab. Vaccinations started in Dec 2020 being given in age/vulnerability order down. 12/16’s to be next . Children? Currently not planned. Booster jabs have started this month.
We are living WITH the virus rather than try to create a Covid-free country (which would be impossible).
Hospitalisations are few (relatively ) Most are young unvaccinated adults and older adults who refused the vaccine. The pandemic will not go away , but “there is a much wider element of public immunity ” and “this is the permanent route out…” (Prof. B. Wren , vaccinology professor, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). The young unvaccinated continue to be most likely to test positive now that schools are back, and large gatherings such as festivals and sports events take place.
SO : assume life is near “normal” : theatres, clubs, sports venues with full specator numbers are open. There are some excellent productions on stage already from musicals to dramas including Shakespeare. See our travel page (link on this page) for more theatre and visitor information.
Masks are still mandatory in some areas : London transport, medical centres and some shops . “We cannot eradicate the virus —so if not now—when?” (Sajiv Javid ).
So – better times are here . If you have queries about an upcoming booking , do ask. Important dates for 2021 are : THEATRES are open ; the Chelsea Flower Show is on now 21/26 Sep. ;London Marathon is 3 October. For full travel /visitor information see the link on this page under Travel
