Sumary of Law firm brings action against government over hotel quarantine rules:
- A law firm representing travellers affected by the UK’s quarantine hotel policy said it has issued court proceedings against the Government.
- London-based PGMBM has previously sought a judicial review of the regulations which require travellers coming from a red list country to spend 11 nights in a quarantine hotel at a cost of £2,285.This rule is applicable for everyone, even if they are fully vaccinated and test negative for Covid.
- There are currently 62 locations on the red list, including Mexico, Tunisia, Turkey, and much of South America and Africa.
- Law abiding citizens who have been double vaccinated should be free from quarantine.
- ”The firm said, if the claim was successful, double vaccinated travellers would no longer have to quarantine at hotels and the Government could be made to refund the fees for all those who were jabbed and still required to stay in a hotel.
- Mr Goodhead added: “The government should look at the actions of almost every other major country in Europe who are exempting the double vaccinated from all forms of quarantine including hotel quarantine which most countries regarded as too extreme to even introduce in the first place.
