JCB clearing the seaweed earlier, was loads washed ashore, guess it was pretty rough seas yesterday.

They also reported Greece will reopen May 14th for Tourism - not sure of requirements so far.  A pilot scheme into Rhodes was launched yesterday so we also wait for updates on how this goes.

I'm more and more confident that we'll get away in Sept now.

The Greek health minister has just announced that Greece will start vaccinating over 40s in June, providing supplies go to plan. Good news for everybody.

Hi Heathy,

From what I was reading in the UK press over the weekend, the lateral flow test (cheaper version) will be supplied before you travel, so that you have one to perform the test whilst you are away. Then, upon return you may need to take the more robust PCR test. But, there will be changes to process and what we will have to do for safe travel over the coming weeks and months, so expect changes and hopefully more cost effective testing.

Good luck.

Well not exactly surprising and what we were expecting, JET2 have now cancelled our flights on 21st June. However, as they've done for the previous two times last year, no hassle and we get a full refund in the next few days. I've been really impressed with their customer service during the pandemic.

Now trying to get in contact with the villa owner to see if we can re-book in September when hopefully the travel situation will be a bit better, at least we will both have had our 2nd vaccination by then.

4th time lucky?   ;)

If a COVID test is required before returning to the UK, does anyone know whereabouts these are available in Corfu.

about a third of people who have the virus don't show any symptoms and a test doesn't show that they have it either.

The PCR test WILL detect asymptomatic cases.

Vaccination reduces spread by about 75%.

Risks cannot be assessed without information.

How can I asses the the risk if I have no information about whether someone else is a potential spreader during a pandemic?

Everyone is a potential spreader whether they are vaccinated or not remember.

Yes TB, it is a personal choice, depending on your circumstances and existing health issues.
