France Reopens UK Border
Earlier today December 22nd, the French Prime Minister announced that France will reopen its border with the United Kingdom allowing the transport of household goods moves and other freight. The border between France and the United Kingdom was closed by the French government on Sunday night following an outbreak of a new highly contagious strain of the Covid-19 virus in the UK. However, truck drivers and other travelers will be required to test negative for COVID-19 no more than 72-hours before crossing the border. Travel is also limited to international truck drivers, European Union citizens and non-French citizens who are permanent residents of an EU country or non-EU citizens traveling with a talent visa. Diplomats, health professionals and teachers are also allowed to travel. The rules cover people travelling to France or passing through France on their way to another country.
