UK imposes stricter travel regulations on Omicron worries

United Kingdom Health Secretary Sajid Javid (pictured) unveiled on Saturday that travellers arriving in the UK from the countries that are not on the so-called red list will have to take a "pre-departure test."

The new rules will apply "regardless of [the traveller's] vaccination status," Javid said in a tweet.

He also added that, "in light of the most recent data" regarding the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, all UK and Irish citizens arriving from Nigeria will have to "isolate in a managed quarantine facility."
