- Red alertQ: When do you think the blanket ban on South America/lower Central America will end?
- “Trying to travel 101”A: “Nonsensical” sums up well the red list status for almost all of Latin America.

- KaggimA: It will certainly not accept tests conducted by people using the free NHS lateral flow devices.
- American adventuresQ: Any idea when the US will lift its ban on entry from the UK? I booked flights and a hotel package with BA in January to go to New York and Washington in October.
