What is the situation in the UK right now?

  1. The removal of all domestic restrictions in law.
  • From Thursday, 24 February:
    • The legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive test will end. Self-isolation support payments will also end. COVID provisions for Statutory Sick Pay will still be able to be claimed for a further month.

    • The legal requirement for close contacts who are not fully vaccinated to self-isolate will be removed.
    • Until 1 April, people who test positive will still be advised to stay at home. After April 1 people with Covid-19 symptoms will be advised to exercise personal responsibility.
  • From 1 April:
    • Free symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public will end.
    • The UK Government will no longer recommend the use of voluntary COVID19-status certification, although the NHS app will continue to allow people to indicate their vaccination status for international travel.

Can I travel to the UK? If yes, what tests/proof of vaccination do I need?

If you are fully vaccinated, before you travel to England you must complete a passenger locator form. You need to do this in the 48 hours before you arrive in England.
You do not need to take any COVID-19 travel tests before you travel to England or after you arrive.
You do not need to quarantine when you arrive in England.

Full details of entry requirements can be found here:

Staying with a host family

Our host families have been asked to provide details about their vaccination status and we will prioritise families that are in possession of proof of a full vaccination. Of course children under the age of 12 are not currently being vaccinated in the UK. This may change.

At the school/in class

Classes will be held in rooms where a good aeration is possible and sizes will be kept as reasonably small as possible.
