The No Vacancy bar in Florida: there are ways around America’s travel requirements, so don’t panic

Q What are the chances of the US opening up to UK residents by 1 October? And if “laundering” before entry to the US, where would you recommend? Finally, does your vaccine status and type of vaccine matter to the US on arrival, or is it just that you have to have come from one of their acceptable countries?
