Grant Shapps confirms people arriving from three countries will face two-week quarantine
Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Jamaica are to be removed from the UK’s travel corridor list, meaning arrivals from those countries will have to quarantine for two weeks, it has been confirmed.
The Guardian earlier revealed that ministers in Westminster had agreed to take Switzerland and Jamaica off the safe list amid rising Covid-19 infection rates, and were waiting to see the latest figures for the Czech Republic before making a final call. They have now decided to remove it too. Cuba, where the situation has improved, is being added to the corridor list in the changes, which will come into effect on Saturday at 4am.
