Britain allows restaurants to enter the country without any tests

Travelers who have received the vaccine can now enter Britain without having any tests for the Corona virus, after the government canceled one of the final restrictions imposed over the past two years to combat Corona.

Britain allows restaurants to enter the country without any tests, Johnson indicates an early end to the isolation rules for Corona

Residents or visitors to Britain who have received at least two doses of an approved coronavirus vaccine now only need to fill out a passenger locator form before traveling to the UK.

While those who did not receive the vaccine are still required to undergo pre- and post-arrival tests, they no longer need to self-isolate until a negative test result comes out.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: "The UK now has one of the freest borders in terms of flowability in the world which sends a clear message that we are open for business."

Airlines and other travel companies have welcomed the change as a lifeline after two years of tight travel restrictions.

Gatwick Airport, London's second-busiest airport, said it plans next month to reopen its second terminal building, which has been closed since June 2020.

British Airways chief executive Sean Doyle urged other countries to follow Britain's "pragmatic approach".

But some scholars are concerned about the government's too rapid moves.

The Conservative government led by Prime Minister Boris Johnson scrapped most domestic restrictions last month.

The muzzle is no longer mandatory in most closed places in England, and the requirement to show vaccination cards to enter nightclubs and large-scale events has been canceled, as well as the official directive to work from home.
