France-UK quarantine in force

People from Monaco will now have to quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in the United Kingdom, after Britain extended it’s red list for travelers. 

UK government ministers set a deadline for people to return to the UK by 4am on Saturday to avoid self-isolating, sparking a frantic dash for Britons enjoying holidays on the continent.

The isolation measure applies to France, the Netherlands, Monaco, Malta, Turks and Caicos, and Aruba, amid concerns about a rising numbers of Covid cases.

Britain’s decision to impose a 14-day quarantine on all arrivals from France will lead to a reciprocal measure, French junior minister for European affairs Clément Beaune said late on Thursday.

“A British decision that we regret and which will lead to a measure of reciprocity, hoping that things will return to normal as soon as possible,” Beaune said on Twitter at midnight.

The French Health Ministry on Saturday reported 3,310 new coronavirus infections over the past 24 hours, setting a new post-lockdown high for the fourth day in a row and taking the country’s cumulative cases to 215,521.

A total of 252 clusters are being investigated, up 17 compared with 24 hours earlier, the ministry said in a website update.

4,857 people were in French hospitals on Saturday night for Covid-19, including 376 in intensive care.
