double vaccinated arrivals from france must still quarantine as ministers impose new amber plus category

Sumary of Double-vaccinated arrivals from France must still quarantine as ministers impose new ‘amber-plus’ category:

  • Less than 60 hours before international travel is due to become easier for vaccinated British travellers, France is to be left out of the scheme.
  • Hundreds of thousands of travellers who were hoping for quarantine-free travel back from France have had their hopes dashed.
  • Fears about the “beta variant” of coronavirus have led ministers to create a new category for incoming travellers: “amber plus”.
  • The health secretary, Sajid Javid, said: “We have always been clear that we will not hesitate to take rapid action at our borders to stop the spread of Covid-19 and protect the gains made by our successful vaccination programme.
  • “With restrictions lifting on Monday across the country, we will do everything we can to ensure international travel is conducted as safely as possible, and protect our borders from the threat of variants.” The UK Health Security Agency chief executive, Dr Jenny Harries said: “As we ease restrictions and begin making our way back to a normal life, it’s more vital than ever that we listen to the data and act decisively when it changes.
  • Many people booked trips to France after the government announced on 8 July that vaccinated travellers need not self-isolate for arrivals from amber list countries from 4am on 19 July.
