The Government announced this afternoon that anyone returning to England from seven Greek islands will need to quarantine for 14 days.
The seven islands are:
- Zakynthos / Zante
The quarantine requirement will kick in from 4am on Wednesday morning. This is a marked change from previous announcements which had always kicked in from 4am on Saturday.
This is, I think, the first time that a particular region instead of an entire country has been placed on the quarantine list.
The islands, but not the mainland, will also be added to the Foreign Office ‘do not travel’ list (click here). This is usually the trigger for being to abandon your holiday plans and make a successful travel insurance claim.
The official ‘travel corridor’ list – which has not been updated at the time of publication – is on this page of the Government website.
