New rules in response to the Omicron variant

Travellers to England from abroad must take a PCR test within two days of arrival, and self-isolate until you receive a negative test result.

If you have been in contact with someone who may have been infected with the Omicron variant, you must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of vaccination status.
