Curfews planned across Europe as restrictions put UK holidays at risk

  • More than half the population of England is now living under increased Covid-19 restrictions, including rules on domestic travel, while curfews are coming into effect across Europe.
  • In the UK, restrictions now include a ban on people from high-risk areas of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland (which includes tiers two and three) visiting Wales and the start of a four-week “circuit breaker” lockdown in Northern Ireland.
  • Transport Secretary Grant Shapps this week unveiled two potential approaches to reducing quarantine times for UK travellers – a test a week after arriving in the country, with release from quarantine with a negative results, and a “trailblazer” system where tests and isolation take place prior to travel.
