Negative COVID-19 test rule before arriving in England pushed back to Monday
(Reuters) – A pre-departure COVID-19 test rule for passengers entering England will come into effect from Monday instead of this week, transport minister Grant Shapps said in a tweet late on Wednesday.
“Passengers will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test before departure to England from Monday 18 January At 4am,” Shapps wrote in his tweet.
“Passengers must remember to complete a Passenger Locator Form before arriving back into England,” Shapps said, adding that passengers would face a fine of 500 pounds ($682.30) if they do not provide proof of negative test.
