Double-jabbed arrivals from France must still quarantine despite amber list rule change
Written by Hit Music Radio News on 16/07/2021
People arriving in England from France will still have to quarantine for 10 days on their return – even if they have received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine, the government has announced.
From Monday, those who have had two COVID vaccine doses will no longer have to isolate after travelling back from countries on the so-called amber list.
However, the Department of Health and Social Care announced on Friday evening that – although still on the amber list – the new rule will not apply to those returning from France due to a large number of cases of the Beta variant, first identified in South Africa.
It means all those making their way back to England from France must continue to quarantine for ten days despite the rule change which comes into force on Monday.
