Grant Shapps: Quarantine period cut from 14 to five days for travellers and holidaymakers

British holidaymakers returning from high-risk countries will see their quarantine period cut by from 14 days to five, plus a Covid-19 test, from mid December. Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps confirmed the move, which has had a mixed reaction from travel bosses.
