The government has confirmed it will review its quarantine rules by 27 July.
Last week, the Department for Transport revealed a list of 59 countries exempt from a 14-day UK quarantine – otherwise known as air bridges.
In an update yesterday (6 July), transport secretary Grant Shapps said the government would keep the requirements and exemptions set out in the regulations under review, with the next review of the regulations to take place by 27 July.
From today (7 July), certain transport workers who do not come into contact with passengers in the course of their journey to England will no longer be required to complete the passenger locator form.
Shapps said this would help pilots, seafarers, and Eurostar and Eurotunnel drivers who make regular crossings without coming into contact with passengers.
There will also be additional exemptions for certain groups, including elite sportspeople and essential support staff returning to England or participating in certain elite sports events, and individuals coming to England to work on British film and television productions.
