Chancellor Rishi Sunak warns France could be next on quarantine list

Government sources say there is a real likelihood that France will be added to the UK’s quarantine list very soon, possibly even today.

Britons preparing to visit France have now been warned there is “always the risk of disruption to travel plans” amid speculation that France could be next on the UK’s quarantine list due to the massive spike in coronavirus cases over the last week.

New infections in France have¬†risen by more than 1,600 over a 24-hour period for a second day – putting the nation at levels not seen since late May. The UK government is reportedly ‘closely monitoring’ the situation and the Chancellor has stated he will not hesitate to enforce the quarantine restrictions on France should it be necessary.

On Thursday, the UK added Belgium, Andorra and the Bahamas to its quarantine list, meaning arrivals from these countries after 4 am on Saturday will need to self-isolate for 14 days. The government is also advising against non-essential travel to these destinations.
