No more Covid tests at the port prior to embarkation


Recommended Posts

We have received a letter from FOCL to say that they now only require passengers to take a lateral flow test 24 hours before embarkation but proof of a negative test must be provided upon checking in.  This must be the spent test cartridge - a photo won't do.  Not sure how that would make things any safer as it would be easy to submit someone else's negative test instead!  They will take a few random tests at the port but anyone who turns up without proof of a negative test will be charged £25 each.  Face masks are no longer required by passengers or crew but can be worn by those who feel more comfortable wearing one.  I see this as good news and more in line with what we were used to before the virus struck.
