“But it will mean, I’m afraid, for some people, that they will have to come home and they will have to do those ten days of quarantine, or five days with Test to Release which is still available to everybody.”
It may be people can end quarantine early if they pay for a private COVID-19 test, through the Test to Release scheme.
Some who have been in a country or territory on the amber list in the 10 days before they arrive in England may be eligible for this scheme.
They will need to quarantine for 10 days on arrival, but under Test to Release, they can choose to pay for a private COVID-19 test on day five.
If this result is negative – and the day two test results was negative or inconclusive – then they can end their quarantine.
