Self-isolation rules to be relaxed for children and double jabs

The government has confirmed that the rules for self-quarantine of fully vaccinated persons under the age of 18 have been relaxed.

Children and adults in double jabs who have been exposed to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus incident do not need to be quarantined for 10 days after the change takes effect on August 16.

They are advised to take the test, but it is not compulsory.

School’s “bubble” system, on the other hand, will be abolished due to concerns that large groups of children will be forced to miss education if a case is detected.

The announcement follows Johnson’s decision to abolish England’s CCP virus regulation in Step 4 of his roadmap to end the blockade scheduled for July 19.

After August 16th, people in close contact with positive cases will no longer need to be quarantined if they are vaccinated twice two weeks before contact.

Children under the age of 18 are not routinely disturbed, so similar exemptions from self-quarantine rules apply to them.

Contacts are encouraged to undergo a PCR test, and those who are positive for the CCP virus should be self-quarantined regardless of vaccination status.

“This new approach means that we can manage the virus in a pandemic-proportional way, while maintaining freedom that is very important to all of us,” said Health Minister Sajid Javid.

Secretary of Education Gavin Williamson has announced plans to abolish the “bubble” system that forced him to stay home in his class, and even the entire school.

According to Ministry of Education (DfE) statistics, about 640,000 public school students (8.5% of all England) were absent from classes on July 1 for COVID-related reasons.

Williamson said the government is aware that “the system of bubbles and isolation is causing confusion in the education of many children.”

“That’s why we end the bubble and transfer contact tracing to the initial setup, school and university NHS test and tracing systems,” he said.

The opportunity will officially take effect on August 16, but Williamson is expected to move to Step 4 after July 19, so it’s up to individual schools to abolish the bubble system before summer vacation. Said that.

Secretary of Transportation Grant Shapps will update the MP later this week on how to eliminate the need for fully vaccinated arrivals to quarantine when returning from a country on the amber list.

This announcement follows Johnson’s announcement of vaccine trust and common sense after the lifting of legal restrictions in the United Kingdom.
