Britain says No Exact date on U.S. travel Reopening

LONDON – Britain’s transport minister Grant Shapps said on Friday (Oct. 8) there was still no exact date on when the United States would open for travellers from the United Kingdom, beyond the guidance of early November.

Asked on Sky News if he had a specific date for the U.S. reopening, Shapps said: “I don’t. I’ve been speaking to my opposite number, I spoke to the American ambassador a couple of days ago, they’re still working through the technicalities of that.”

The minister also said that he would make an announcement on allowing lateral flow tests instead of PCR tests for fully-vaccinated people returning to England from abroad in the next few days and the policy would be in place before the half-term holiday in late October.
