He says not enough time has passed to ensure others on his charter flight to the UK are safe:

For those wondering, the UK and US Covid-19 guidelines are quite different. Getting on the charter or a commercial flight was not an option available to me after my recent exposure. I don’t make the rules but do have to follow them.

1) He’s vaccinated.
2) He passed the test.
3) Yet, he still can’t go.
