TRAVEL NEWS Dec 5 2021 . News changes daily so do ask any questions. Information from current government, Visit Britain, and media .
All UK arrivals must take a pre-departure test . This can be lateral flow or PCR and can be bought/ sent for from pharmacies etc : the result must be recorded. The pharmacy will advise how this is done. Arrivals at UK airports must also pre-book a PCR test to take place on arrival day or following day (within 48 hours – results said to be within 24 hours or less ). Your PASSENGER LOCATOR form which is checked at your departure airport must give the pre-departure test results + show your booking reference for the UK 2day test.
These measures are said to be a “precaution” against the too- rapid spread of the Omicron variant now present and will certainly spread in many countries. Current scientific reports suggest symptoms are milder than Delta, with few if any hospitalisations ,but while tests are taking place these measures will remain. ( more likely to be known in a few weeks ).
Dec 5.89% of UK adults over 12 have had one jab. 81% over 12’s are double vaccinated. 35% over 12’s have had boosters ( vaccinations were given in strict age order as of Dec 2020 so only over 40’s as yet eligible for boosters – but boosters for all over 12’s being introduced now) .
Dec 5. UK Covid Hospital admissions and deaths are down in last 7 days by 0.8%/812 persons admitted and 3.6% /127 persons died respectively for all UK.(population approx .66M) Cases are up ,largely among primary school children (under 12’s).
