Qured and Eurofins are good

Qured worked great for me and they ship tests from NJ so it didn't take very long to get the test.
https://qured.us/products/video-antigen-test use code NOVEMBER15 for 15% off.
I ended up using the test to return to the USA as the UK just changed the rules where vaccinated don't need a test.

Is the UK changing testing requirements for those with 2 doses more than 6 months ago? They listed a change for fully vaccinated travelers effective febuary 11.

“ The British government announced Monday that it is scrapping coronavirus testing requirements for vaccinated people arriving in England, news hailed by the travel industry as a big step back to normality.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that “to show that this country is open for business, open for travelers, you will see changes so that people arriving no longer have to take tests if they have been vaccinated, if they have been double vaccinated.”

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the change would take effect Feb. 11, coinciding with a midterm holiday break for many schoolchildren.”

Has this been tested? It sounds like this can be easily verified.

Seems like this a pre-departure pcr, not a day 2 test...
