France listed on UK quarantine list, Holidaymakers are facing chaos and uncertainty amid fears France, Holland,
Switzerland, Poland, and Malta could be added to the quarantine list within days.
Amid an alarming surge in COVID-19 cases on the continent, Boris Johnson warned yesterday that ministers
will ‘not hesitate’ to reintroduce quarantine ‘very rapidly’ if infections continue to rise.
Another 500,000 set to go to France this summer have also had their plans thrown into doubt.
The Netherlands was also added to the quarantine list tonight. Holidaymakers now face travel chaos in a mad
30-hour scramble to return home before the new quarantine rules kick in.
With planes still limited, Brits will have to make a desperate dash to the Eurostar or ferries to try and
secure their spots to return home.
The cut-off point is 4 am on Saturday and anyone arriving after that will have to isolate for two weeks.
Families with children now risk missing the first week of school as 14-day self-isolation measures are re-imposed.
And last night an industry expert warned it may be the case that fresh restrictions are imposed on Holland,
Switzerland, Poland, and Malta, where case numbers are rising. All returning passengers would have to self-isolate for 14 days.
