Coronavirus: Quarantine scrapped for arrivals from ‘low risk’ countries to England

People arriving in England from countries including France, Spain, Germany and Italy will no longer need to quarantine from 10 July, the Department for Transport has confirmed.

A full list of exempt countries posing “a reduced risk” from coronavirus will be published on Friday.

Most travellers to the UK currently have to self-isolate for two weeks.

The Foreign Office is also changing its advice against all but essential travel to a number of countries from Saturday

The quarantine restrictions came into force in early June, to try to prevent coronavirus being brought in at a time when infections in the UK were falling.
