The UK is planning to lift coronavirus-induced travel restrictions during Christmas and allow families to travel to high-risk “red list” countries to visit relatives. The UK transport secretary will be annoucing the decision on Monday, according to The Telegraph report. 

Key points

Restrictions will be slashed from 14 days to five if holidaymakers test negative five days after returning to the country. 

The regulations will be changed to enact the new five-day regime on Dec. 15 or 16, with people freed from quarantine as soon as they get their test results.
