Switzerland, Jamaica and the Czech Republic added to the UK quarantine list giving holidaymakers until 4am on Saturday to get home or face 14-day isolation – but Cuba is given the all clear
Britons on holiday in Switzerland, Jamaica and the Czech Republic face a mad dash to get home after they were added to the UK’s quarantine list.
Travellers arriving in the UK after 4am on Saturday from those nations will have to self-isolate for 14 days, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced this evening.
But in good news for other holidaymakers, Cuba has been removed from the quarantine list, he announced.
The Government held its weekly review of travel measures today with an announcement likely to be made this evening on any changes.
The UK has said that any country which records more than 20 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people in a seven-day period will be subject to a travel ban and the 14 day self-isolation requirement for returning travellers.
