High value people, like CEO’s and celebrities, will be allowed to avoid coronavirus restrictions in the U.K. and elsewhere while other lowly serfs must sit down and be quiet. That includes when the state declares who won elections. An open, massive transfer of power and privileges to the wealthy making the poor and middle class into serfs in an attempt to remake global capitalism (i.e. the Great Reset).
‘High-value’ business travelers to be exempt from quarantine in England
From Saturday some performing arts professionals, TV staff and elite sportspersons will also be exempt
By Simon Murphy, The Guardian
Senior company executives are among travelers set to be exempt from Covid-19 quarantine restrictions for international arrivals in England, meaning they will not have to self-isolate for up to a fortnight.
Recently signed elite sportspeople, performing arts professionals, TV production staff and journalists will also not have to abide by quarantine restrictions if arriving from a country outside of England’s travel corridor from 4am on Saturday.
Announcing the move on Twitter, the transport secretary, Grant Shapps, said “high-value business travellers” would be exempt from quarantine rules in an effort to boost the economy, “subject to specific criteria being met”.
It is understood that the exemption will apply to senior company executives, such as directors or their equivalents, either returning or travelling to England who can deliver “significant” economic benefit. They will only qualify for the exemption if their work requires them to be there in person.
Currently, travellers coming from non-exempt nations have to quarantine for two weeks, but as of 15 December people will be able to pay for a private coronavirus test to reduce their isolation time to as little as five days, as long as they return a negative result. The new “test to release” regime comes after months of lobbying by the struggling airline industry.
Senior executives classed as bringing “significant” economic benefit are understood to include those whose work creates or preserves 50 or more jobs for either an existing UK-based business or a new UK business within one year of their arrival.
