France has announced that people travelling from non-EU countries will no longer be able to get into the country by presenting a negative result from a quick, readily-available COVID-19 test. The new rules, which come into force from 18 January and are set out in a French government document, say people will no longer be able to use antigen, or lateral flow, tests that can deliver results within minutes. Those quicker tests have been heavily used by truck drivers transporting goods across the Channel between Britain and France.
