New Critical Workforce Testing Measures

On Tuesday the Prime Minister announced that the Government will provide 100,000 critical workers in England with free lateral flow tests to help keep essential services and supply chains running.
Critical workers will be able to take a test on every working day and the provision of precautionary testing will be for an initial five weeks.

Pre-departure testing removed for vaccinated travellers
From 4am on Friday 7 January, fully vaccinated adults & under 18s don’t need to take a pre-departure test before entering England.

From 4am on Sunday 9 January, eligible fully vaccinated travellers and over 5s will be able to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR on or before day 2 of their arrival in England.

Unvaccinated passengers must continue to take a pre-departure test, PCR test on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 and self-isolate for 10 days.
