COVID-19 updates

Pre-travel testing will no longer come into effect on Thursday

The Civil Contingencies Authority said last week that it would be undertaking further work over the weekend to examine how best it could implement proposals to provide greater levels of protection to our small communities.

A further announcement will be made tomorrow (27th July), once the CCA has made a final decision on whether any other mitigating measures are required. 

Further work is needed and as a consequence the planned changes on Thursday this week (29th July), requiring fully vaccinated travellers to have a pre-travel test, have been put on hold.
