UK to ease COVID-19 lockdown, considering vaccine passport options

CA, 06 Apr 2021
Britain’s slow but steady march out of a three-month lockdown remains on track even as COVID-19 cases surge elsewhere in Europe, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Monday, as he confirmed that businesses from barbers to bookstores will be allowed to reopen next week.

Johnson said it’s too soon to decide, however, whether U.K. residents will be able to have summer trips abroad. He confirmed that the government will test out a contentious “vaccine passport” system — a way for people to offer proof they have protection from COVID-19 — as a tool to help travel and large events return safely.
