Coronavirus (COVID-19)—test to release scheme to launch on 15 December 2020

The Department for Transport has announced the launch of a ‘Test to release for international travel’ strategy, under which passengers arriving to England from a country not featured on the travel corridor list may be able to reduce the number of days for which they are required to self-isolate. The scheme will enable individuals to take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test after five days of self-isolation. Should the test come back negative, the individual will be released from the requirement to isolate for the full two-week period. Passengers wishing to participate in the strategy will be required to book their test with a private provider specified on a government list before they travel, pay for that test, complete a passenger locator form, and self-isolate for five days before taking the test. The strategy will be introduced from 15 December 2020.
