England makes no changes to COVID-19 quarantine countries

Thu, 3rd Sep 2020 17:02

LONDON, Sept 3 (Reuters) - No changes were made to the list
of countries on England's quarantine list on Thursday, British
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said.

English holiday makers in Portugal were awaiting the
decision after the number of cases in the country rose above the
threshold at which the 14-day quarantine for returning
travellers is considered. Quarantine is already in place for
popular destinations France and Spain.

"We continue to keep the Travel Corridor list under constant
review & won't hesitate to remove countries if needed," Shapps
said on Twitter. "However, there are no English additions or
removals today."
