UK to remove Belgium, Andorra and Bahamas from safe travel list

Thu, 6th Aug 2020 20:05

LONDON, Aug 6 (Reuters) - Passengers arriving into Britain
from Belgium, the Bahamas and Andorra will need to quarantine
for 14 days due to concerns over rising COVID-19 infection
rates, transport minister Grant Shapps said on Thursday.

"Data shows we need to remove Andorra, Belgium and The
Bahamas from our list of #coronavirus Travel Corridors in order
to keep infection rates DOWN," Shapps wrote on Twitter.

"If you arrive in the UK after 0400 Saturday from these
destinations, you will need to self-isolate for 14 days."
