The Times – Travel rules ditched for vaccinated
The Times has news for travellers this summer – it says that from as early as 19 July, fully vaccinated people arriving in England from countries on the amber list will be able to avoid quarantine. Ministers will meet on Wednesday to sign off a policy, it says, that will allow people to travel from amber destinations without isolating for up to 10 days, thereby opening up travel from France, Greece, Italy and Spain.
