U.K. and U.S. government officials are in regular talks about a potential travel corridor between the two countries given their mutually high rate of coronavirus vaccinations, according to Britain’s transport secretary.

Grant Shapps said he speaks to his U.S. counterpart Pete Buttigieg “all the time” on the issue, and understands demands from the public and businesses to loosen restrictions between the nations.
