UK shares good news!

Good news for fully vaccinated students travelling to England: from tomorrow morning they won't need to self-isolate while waiting for their test results. Students will also no longer need to take a test before they travel to England. Additionally, fully vaccinated students arriving in England from 9th January can choose to take a lateral flow test instead of a PCR test. EC will provide a free lateral flow test for all students, including those not in EC accommodation!
