As the holiday season kicks in, United States officials are trying to shorten the travel quarantine time for trips between New York City and London.

The Transportation Department and the Department of Homeland Security are currently in talks to establish safe travel between the U.S. and the international destinations by testing travelers before and after their flights for COVID-19. The goal is to shorten the quarantine time.

According to The Wall Street Journal, both the Trump Administration and foreign government must agree before moving forward with the plan.

Currently, U.S. citizens traveling to the U.K. must quarantine for 14 days and cannot travel to the European Union. The U.S. also bars entry to travelers from the U.K. and Europe, unless they are U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
