Covid: New Omicron travel and self-isolation rules come into force
BBC News says People travelling to the UK must now take a Covid test before their journey, as new travel rules to limit the spread of the Omicron variant take effect.
Contacts of a suspected Omicron case are also required self-isolate for 10 days, including the fully vaccinated.
There are currently 336 confirmed cases of the highly-mutated Covid strain in the UK.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid has confirmed Omicron is spreading in the community in multiple areas of England.
He told MPs on Monday the mutated Covid strain was spreading “here and around the world” and that there were people who have tested positive for Omicron in the UK “with no links to international travel”.
