UK to unveil plan to let vaccinated travelers in without quarantine

The British government will reveal a plan to allow fully vaccinated foreign arrivals from countries on the amber list into the United Kingdom without the need to quarantine, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said on Friday. He assured the government is "actively working" on the plan and estimated it will be presented to the public in the "next couple of weeks."

Shapps added the UK must be able to recognize coronavirus certificates from other countries, explaining it is "easier done from some places, like the European Union where they have an app" than from the United States, where certificates vary by state and they are often issued on paper. The secretary announced on Thursday that fully vaccinated UK travelers will be able to travel to amber-list countries from July 19.
