Travel quarantine could be reduced to 8 days as government launches Seat Out To Help Out


THE government has announced that it may reduce the quarantine of trips from ten to eight days.

Businesses and MPs have pleaded with Boris Johnson to reconsider the ten-day isolation period due to the colossal damage done to the travel industry by politics.

The Mail on Sunday reports that officials are considering the possibility of testing people for the virus eight days after arriving in the country.

However, government sources pointed out to the document that no decision has yet been made.

Foreign Minister Dominic Raab also told the BBC’s “Andrew Marr Show” this morning that a testing policy for inbound travelers was “under review”.

However, he stressed that testing it was “not a quick fix” – and would help “ease” the quarantine without completely eliminating the need for it.

The UK death toll rose by 2 today to a total of 41,551.
