LONDON July 4: The UK government is “considering” scrapping quarantine requirements for those who have had both vaccine doses, newspapers in UK reported.

Downing Street said it was looking at whether to drop all legal self-isolation measures for fully vaccinated people who come into contact with someone who is infected “as part of the post-Step 4 world”.

But officials confirmed this weekend that additional thought was going into making the testing requirement advisory rather than mandatory for those who have had two jabs. If approved, the plan would not come into force on so-called “freedom day” on 19 July, with sources indicating that the timeline would be “quite a bit later” than the planned date for the end of all restrictions. Several different proposals are understood to be under consideration with no final decisions yet made, Sky News reported.

According to ITV News, Downing Street said it was looking at whether to drop all legal self-isolation measures for fully vaccinated people who come into contact with someone who is infected “as part of the post-Step 4 world”. It comes after The Times reported that a meeting of the Covid operations committee will take place on Monday at which ministers are expected to sign off a plan that will mean those who have been double-jabbed will be “advised”, after so-called “freedom day” on July 19, to take daily tests but not be required to do so.
