    England will cut its two-week quarantine period down to five days ahead of the Christmas holiday period. From December 15, travellers will be required to quarantine for five days if they test negative to the coronavirus – and are only eligible if they pay for the test themselves and book with a government-approved private firm. Swabs can cost between $120 and $220. The changes do not apply to travellers arriving from other parts of the United Kingdom.
