British travelers who have received a full dosage of coronavirus vaccine will no longer need to isolate when they return home from moderate-risk countries, starting this month.

Instead of quaranting at home for 10 days, passengers returning to England from destinations on the government’s “amber list” will be told to take a Covid test two days after arrival, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said Thursday in a statement to the U.K. Parliament. The new rules take effect on July 19.
