UK must drop quarantine for arrivals from low-risk countries – Heathrow chief

LONDON, Apr 1 (Reuters) – London Heathrow Airport Chief Executive Officer John Holland-Kaye said the UK should lift the requirement for home or hotel quarantine for passengers from low-risk countries of COVID-19.

“We need a new level between yellow and green (risk levels), where there is a low level of concern, but still some issues, and testing may need to be done before getting on the plane, possibly testing after we have arrived, but without the need for quarantine, “he told BBC radio.

“And that’s the big change we need to see: moving away from quarantine as the primary control.”
