September 1, 2020

  No Covid test required  
  Mandatory quarantine  
  UK passenger locator form  

Originally we were attempting to meet in the US but this seemed very difficult. We then realised there is no restriction on US citizens visiting the UK other than the 14 day quarantine. I flew from Newark to Heathrow, no questions asked. You are permitted to travel on public transport in the Uk so my partner met me at the airport and we took the train to our destination. I completed the 14 day quarantine but was never contacted by anyone to check in on me. We were then able to to travel freely around the country.

On flying back to the US I was asked where I had been but there were no problems and no quarantine requirements. This I’m was an amazing trip and what we really needed after such a difficult year.
