A framework for considering the impact of air travel restrictions on the UK
- how travel restrictions affect the speed and peak of a new variant’s spread in the UK
- the trigger points for bringing in, as well as removing, testing requirements to deal with new Variants of Concern—i.e. what is the critical point at which introducing travel restrictions could have an impact and at what point is there a critical mass of a Variants of Concern domestically such that travel restrictions are no longer relevant?
- the benefits of travel restrictions from a public health perspective compared with the costs they impose on the UK economy
