The British government announced Monday that all remaining coronavirus measures, including passenger locator forms, and the requirement for unvaccinated persons to be tested for COVID-19 prior and after arrivals, were lifted.

The UK will end all COVID-19 travel restrictions before Easter break

This will make it easier to go on holiday for Easter school vacation.

Grant Shapps, Transport Secretary, said that people will be able to travel "just like in the old days."

Passenger locator forms ask for travel details, an address in the U.K., and a vaccination status.

This announcement was made as coronavirus infection rates were on the rise in the U.K. (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland) for the first time since January. In addition, the number of COVID-19-positive hospital patients is on the rise. Scientists believe that many of the infections found in England are a more transmissible variant of the omicron.

Sajid Javid, Health Secretary, stated that "We will continue to monitor and track potential new variants and keep a reserve measure which can be quickly deployed if necessary to keep us safe."
