Czech Rep., Jun 29 (JS) – A so-called “traffic light” system has been in operation since June 15th, designating which European countries are considered safe for travel to and from the Czech Republic. Until now, the UK, one of the European countries worst hit by the coronavirus pandemic, has been the subject of stricter travel regulations than most, with either a negative PCR test or two-week quarantine required for tourists from Britain.
As of June 30th, the UK would be reclassified as a “green zone” country, meaning there will be no such requirements on anyone entering the Czech Republic from the UK, starting June 30th.
The number of new cases of coronavirus in the UK is hovering around 1,000 per day, and the daily death count stood at 186 just three days ago.
