business travellers journalists and others exempt from england quarantine restrictions

Business travellers, journalists and elite sports personalities will be among those exempt from the government’s 14-day quarantine restriction from 5 December.

At the moment, anyone returning from a destination that’s not on the government’s travel corridors list are subject to a mandatory 14-day self-isolation.

Even those transiting through a country that’s not on the travel corridors list will be subject to quarantine.

Travellers can shorten this to five days under the test to release system, by paying for a private test on day five and provided it returns a negative result.

However, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps confirmed on Twitter that certain individuals will be exempt from all quarantine on arrival in England.

While announcing this week’s travel corridor changes, he Tweeted: “New Business Traveller exemption: From 4am on Sat 5th Dec high-value business travellers will no longer need to self-isolate when returning to ENGLAND from a country NOT in a travel corridor, allowing more travel to support the economy and jobs. Conditions apply.

“From 4am on Sat 5th Dec certain performing arts professionals, TV production staff, journalists and recently signed elite sportspersons will also be exempt, subject to specific criteria being met – guidance will be available on gov.uk soon.”

It’s not clear whether this rule might be extended to other parts of the UK as Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland all have their own travel restrictions.

Mr Shapps also confirmed that there would be no additions or removals from the travel corridors list this week.
