Covid: Double-jabbed EU and US travellers to England will not have to quarantine

This evening the Scottish government said it will do the same.

The weekly trend of infections in the UK is still down, although just over 27,500 new Covid cases in the UK were reported today, a rise on yesterday, along with a further 91 deaths.
