Care staff returning from holiday may need to self-isolateCare staff returning from holiday may need to self-isolate

All homecare staff returning from countries which are not on the exempt destinations list, will be required to self-isolate for fourteen days on return to the UK. Care and health professionals registered with a UK-based regulator are also now required to self-isolate for 14 days. This is a change from the previous advice. Read the Government travel advice

The list of countries which are exempt destinations is liable to change, and different effective dates may apply in UK nations. For example, Belgium, Andorra, and Bahamas have been added to the UK quarantine list effective 04:00 BST on 8 August except in Wales, where the change was effective midnight on 6 August. Quarantines have already been re-imposed for returnees from Spain and Luxembourg.
