Effectively this positive is an fascinating one…
American flies to London for 24 hours
An American Airways gross sales govt posted on his LinkedIn a few 24 hour journey he took to London to attend the ribbon chopping ceremony for American Airways’ transfer to Heathrow Terminal 5, which occurred this week. Right here’s his full submit, with names redacted:
Effectively that was a fast 24 hours within the UK!
This morning I attended the official ribbon chopping to mark American Airways transfer to Terminal 5 at London Heathrow. It’s an exquisite facility and we’re extremely grateful to British Airways for enabling this to occur.
Many because of [name] for internet hosting and for my first enterprise dinner shortly(!) in addition to having an incredible catch-up with [name].
I’ll write in a submit on Monday as to why Individuals don’t essentially have to spend 14 days in quarantine on arrival within the UK and likewise clarify new varieties that should be accomplished previous to arrival each within the UK and the USA.
However for now, AA21 is taking me again dwelling.
What’s the quarantine loophole right here?
This American Airways govt says he’ll write about “why Americans don’t necessarily need to spend 14 days in quarantine on arrival in the UK.”
I don’t know if I can wait till Monday to search out out about his logic, so may somebody please fill me in on what I’m lacking? The UK is extraordinarily particular with regards to exceptions to the 14 day quarantine rule, and I don’t see something on the record that might cowl this journey.
Except he’s moonlighting as a jail escort, aerospace engineer, or nuclear emergency responder, I’m unsure what he’s going off of right here. A gross sales govt can’t in any method be labeled as an airline crew member, and presumably he wasn’t simply within the sterile transit space for his 24 hours there.
In the meantime for these not exempt, right here’s what you’re anticipated to do throughout your 14 day quarantine:
It is best to self-isolate in a single place for the total 14 days, the place you’ll be able to have meals and different requirements delivered, and keep away from others. You will need to self-isolate on the deal with you supplied on the general public well being passenger locator type.
This will embrace:
your personal dwelling
staying with associates or household
a lodge or different short-term lodging
You shouldn’t have guests, together with family and friends, until they’re offering important care. The one family and friends who you’ll be able to have contact with are those that travelled with you or individuals who you’re staying with.
You can’t exit to work or faculty or go to public areas. You shouldn’t buy groceries. For those who require assist shopping for groceries, different buying or selecting up medicine, you need to ask associates or family members or order a supply.
I’m not that means to blow this man’s cowl, but it surely additionally appears irresponsible to go to a rustic that explicitly has a 14 day quarantine, violate it, after which write about it and inform Individuals that they don’t essentially have to quarantine for 14 days.
So, what am I lacking, of us?
