Good to take heed on a niggle, Gul and err on the side of caution.
Nice MLR, SBD.
OO/SBD, my understanding is that a green list country has the same rules as amber list for double jabbed travellers. Therefore 48 hours before your return you need to take a supervised lateral flow test then the be allowed back into UK you must show evidence that you have a day 2 PCR test booked otherwise they'll pack you off to a quarantine hotel.
For the lateral flow test, we have a company lined up that you have a video call appointment with and they watch you take the test then issue the certs. It was about £35 each. I have heard various stories of people having no phone reception to be able to open their e-mails etc to show evidence and not being allowed on the flight etc so I would take no chances. PCR test is about £40 each and we can drop it off to a pick up point at a service station about 10m away.
Sadly passports have not come so my nice week home alone is ruined. i had some lovely but simple plans as well such as staying up late over the weekend watching Olympic marathons, afternoon sleeps and lots of training as I do a mini front load prior to my planned flight next Friday, which is all starting to look edgy now as this passport thing rolls on.
11m yesterday at 7.50mm then 6m this morning at a rather sprightly 7.27mm but still very easy feeling. Like SBD, I will do some s and c tonight.
gdawg, yes my wife's came back last week after 16 days and that was submitted after my son's. I don't really know what the hold up is. I've rung the general help line who have told me there's no outstanding info and it is a straightforward renewal so should be anytime. That was a week ago.
As for Kempton park, I did my half there in May. It's a pretty twisty loop which invariably will lead to gps confusion but obviously nice and flat. Lots of parking and toilets as well, which I think is a real plus for the emergence of these closed circuit races post-covid. I like them as they reduce the stress of driving into a big city, parking and paying for that and then getting penned in 30 mins before start time.
