No quarantine for Covid positive from March
The government has announced that the last remaining COVID restrictions will be lifted by the end of February if current data trends remain positive. People will not be forced to wear masks or self-isolate anymore, even if they are tested positive. They would be only advised to avoid going to work if they have the virus. Currently, there is a minimum of 5 days quarantine for the Covid sick and this is a legal obligation. Those who do not follow the rules might face possible fines.
Earlier this year the government announced that people need to learn to live with Covid and treat the virus as common flu. However, some travel restrictions, such as passenger locator forms and quarantine for unvaccinated people, are likely to continue.
What about travel restrictions?
From February 11th, full vaccinated travellers are free to come or leave England without taking any Covid tests when departing or arriving.
Not fully vaccinated will still be required to isolate for 8 days and take a test on the final day of their quarantine.
All passengers must fill out the Locator Form within 24 hours of their travel.
Recent numbers falling as low as 22.8%.
