TRAVEL NEWS June 10, 2021 . News changes daily so do ask any questions. Information from current and varied UK media
GOOD NEWS . “The success of the jabs rollout strengthens the case for all remaining restrictions to be lifted “.( see below) . “Figures suggest approximately 80% of Uk adults now have Covid antibodies”. There have been ” no rise in hospital admissions and the average number of daily deaths has stayed below 10.” There are still covid “hotspots” largely in the NW , of the so-called “Indian ” variant, but largely younger people who are not hospitalised. So – one can’t ever be sure but the mood the country seems to be along the lines of “most of us have been vaccinated and the younger adults are currently being “done”- why wait for the remaining restrictions to be lifted.
UK is OPEN . It is easiest to list what is NOT open. (10 June ) Assume life as “normal” as one can be, but the following are still closed : nightclubs, large unstructured gatherings eg festivals. Outdoor gatherings up to 30 only UNLESS organised crowds eg football and other sports spectators. Restaurants and pubs must do table service only i.e. no standing at the bar . Masks and social distancing still in place in shops, transport etc (not outdoors).
June 21 ALL other remaining limits as above MAY be lifted but not yet certain.
OVERSEAS ARRIVALS. Quarantine for those arriving ( both overseas residents and returning British citizens) is as follows still.
“GREEN” countries. Visitors and returning UK nationals from “green” countries ( high vaccination/low CV rates) need not quarantine at all , and negative test 72 hours before travelling.As of 7 May these are : Australia and New Zealand, Iceland, Malta,Gibraltar, Singapore and a few more small islands.
“RED” alert high risk countries. Most of Asia , South America, Africa. 10 days quarantine in an airport hotel at visitors’ own expense.
“AMBER” countries – all the rest being most of Europe, USA, Canada. 10 day quarantine at your rental property/hotel or home, but with a negative test after 5 days meaning you are “free”. Some countries on this list may be moved to “green” at the next review – Spain , USA and other European countries being most likely to move to “. Currently Boris and Joe Biden are said to be discussing a “travel corridor” between USA and UK at the G7 summit in Cornwall.
