We'd heard of this possibility before - but it is now a reality.

"Passengers arriving from all international destinations will be required to present a negative Covid-19 test result before departing for England to help protect against the new strain of coronavirus, the British Embassy in Bangkok said on Friday. UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps had announced that from next week inbound passengers arriving by boat, plane or train would have to take a test no more than 72 hours before departing the country they are in, to help protect against the new strains of coronavirus such as those seen in Denmark and South Africa.
The decisive action is in response to the changes seen in the transmission of the virus both domestically and across the globe, the embassy said. Pre-departure testing will protect travel and will provide an additional layer of safety from imported cases of coronavirus on top of the mandatory 10-day quarantine for arrivals, helping identify people who may currently be infectious and preventing them from travelling to England
