Day 2 PCR Testing for Green Listed countries in Colchester
We offer the Day 2 PCR testing for Green Listed countries in Colchester at Dedham Pharmacy. The UK government adopted a traffic light system for categorising the risk of Covid-19 infection caused by travel to foreign nations at the start of the summer. With new Covid-19 virus variants and outbreaks appearing around the world, this approach is being implemented to reduce the danger of Covid-19 infection.
The traffic light system for foreign travel
Depending on the risk of Covid-19 infection, countries are classified as green, amber, or red. There are specific rules and requirements around testing and quarantine for those returning from one of these three lists of countries. The UK government is likely to amend and move countries from one list to another as the Covid-19 situation develops around the world. As a result, we urge that you check the government website for the most up-to-date information to ensure that you are following the requirements correctly. At the bottom of this article, you'll discover links to important resources.
What are the requirements for travelling from a green listed country?
In the past 10 days, you must have only visited or travelled through a green list country or the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man.
Even if you have been vaccinated, you still need to follow these rules.
Before travelling to England

On arrival in England
