Fears over summer holidays.

20-03-2021

Summer holidays overseas are "extremely unlikely" because of the risk of travellers bringing coronavirus variants back to Britain, a scientist on a government advisory body told the BBC.

Britain faces a "real risk" if people travel abroad, Dr Mike Tildesley claimed. Foreign holidays are currently banned by the British government and returning travellers have to quarantine.

British Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said it was "too early to tell" when holidays abroad would be allowed. Under the current roadmap for easing restrictions, the earliest date people in England could holiday abroad would be 17 May.

People can currently travel abroad for a limited number of reasons, such as education or work, with anyone who does having to fill in a "Declaration to Travel" form stating a valid reason for leaving the country.

Covid is likely always going to be with us in one form or another so are we going to end travel abroad for years to come ? What is the point of vaccination if it doesn't allow us to return to normality ? If summer holidays are cancelled again this year it will spell the end for most of the travel industry as well as those business's in the resorts that rely totally on the tourist trade. Does anybody think governments don't want us to return to our old lives ?
