Sumary of New ‘amber plus’ status for France with mandatory home quarantine for arrivals — what does it mean?:
- One possible exception is for Eurostar rail passengers from Brussels, Rotterdam and Amsterdam to London St Pancras International.
- The government is probably wishing it had thought of the “medium-high-risk” classification earlier, since it allows mandatory self-isolation to continue without obliging all arrivals to go into expensive and arduous hotel quarantine, but while limiting the risk to public health in the UK.
- The data analyst Tim White said it was “a huge mistake not to have a category between amber and red, or make it clear ‘old amber’ would stay for some”.
