Following fears that there could have been a widespread food shortage in the U.K, France appears to have come up off its ban on travelers to and from the country. According to the French government, the restriction on truck drivers entering the country has been temporarily lifted so long as a negative COVID test can be provided.
The move comes as officials are battling reports of food running low in markets across the U.K and amid fears that it could get worse. In the coming days, testing sites are scheduled to pop up across popular routes that truck drivers use during their delivery routes. Since the weekend — some 2,800 reported carrier trucks were stranded and could not meet their demands.
