FRANCE TO REOPEN BORDER WITH ENGLAND FOR TRAVELLERS CLEARED OF COVID-19

France will reopen its borders to passengers from England on Wednesday (Dec 23), ending a blockade intended to stop the spread of a new coronavirus variant.

Much of the world shut its borders to Britain after a significantly more transmissible mutated coronavirus variant was discovered spreading swiftly across southern England.

With queues of trucks snaking to the horizon in England and some supermarket shelves stripped just days before Christmas, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson scrambled to get French President Emmanuel Macron to lift a ban on freight from Britain.

Late on Tuesday a deal was reached with Paris to allow French and other EU residents to return home, providing they have a negative COVID-19 test that is less than 72 hours old.
