Three more countries removed from the UK’s list of safe travel corridors
The Czech Republic, Jamaica and Switzerland were today announced as the latest countries to be removed from the UK government’s list of Covid-safe ‘travel corridors’, following an increase in their Covid infection rates, meaning that anyone arriving into England from these countries after 4 am on Saturday, 29th August will have to self-isolate for 14 days on their return to Britain.
This latest announcement further reduces the number of countries open to Britons who are unable to self-isolate on their return as the UK government attempts to control a rise in Covid-19 infections, which could lead to the much talked about second wave.
Portugal, which was added back on to the list of safe countries last week, has seen its infection rates rocket, putting it at risk of being removed again.
