Travellers returning from more than 50 countries deemed “low risk” do not have to quarantine when they enter the UK, although some of these countries have imposed restrictions on UK travellers. France is one of the the latest countries to be added to the quarantine list following a spike in infections in the country. Travellers returning from affected countries – including UK nationals – are asked to provide an address where they will self isolate for 14 days, facing a fine of £100 if they fail to comply.
