The Government announced this afternoon that anyone returning to England from Turkey, Poland and Bonaire / St Eustatius / Saba will need to quarantine for 14 days.
Interestingly, the rationale for removing Turkey is that the Government believes that it has not been completely honest in its reporting of covid cases.
The quarantine requirement will kick in from 4am on Saturday morning.
No countries will be removed from the quarantine list.
These three countries will presumably soon be removed from the list of countries excempt from 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 as of 5.30pm with these changes – is on this page of the Government website.
