Cyprus and Lithuania removed from UK travel corridor

Transport Secretary Grant Shapp has announced Cyprus and Lithuania have been removed from UK travel corridor.

TRAVELLERS returning from these countries will now have to quarantine for 14 days from 4am on Sunday, November 1.

In the latest announcement, no countries were added to the list of those that are exempt from quarantine measures.

Both Cyprus and Lithuania have seen seven-day rate increases in Covid-19 cases.

According to data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, Cyprus has a rate of 112 cases per 100,000 people and Lithuania has 140 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.

The UK’s seven-day rate is higher at 230 per 100,000 inhabitants.

Fines for people not self-isolating when returning from affected countries start at £1,000 and can rise to £10,000 if coronavirus rules are continually breached.

Last week the Canary Islands, Denmark, Maldives and Mykonos added to UK’s safe travel list.
