The British Government Has Dropped the Quarantine Obligation for Many Countries
The British government has dropped the quarantine obligation for many countries.
The measure allows the British to go to many holiday destinations without having to be in isolation for two weeks upon return. British media reported this on Thursday.
The government is thereby abandoning the idea of establishing so-called airlifts for tourists to some popular European countries with a low corona risk.
Instead, there will be a list of 75 countries, including virtually all states of the EU, for which the quarantine obligation will lapse.
In addition to the EU countries, this includes Turkey, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. The countries have a sufficiently low corona risk to travel to, according to the British authorities.
The quarantine obligation will expire for those countries from Monday, according to British media. The list of countries is expected on Thursday or Friday.
