UK Outbound Travel to be banned

In an additional statement, after removing Sweden and Germany from the safe travel corridor list, the UK Government confirmed that Denmark would also be removed.

The Scandinavian country will be removed along with the two other removals this week at 4am on Saturday 7th November.

The surprise move comes after a developing situation in Denmark, with health authorities in Denmark reporting widespread outbreaks of coronavirus (COVID-19) in mink farms, with a variant strain of the virus spreading to some local communities.

The UK Chief Medical Officer has therefore recommended that, as precautionary measure, all those returning from Denmark should self-isolate for 14 days.

Grant Shapps said of the decision: “I understand that this will be concerning for both people currently in Denmark and the wider UKpublic, which is why we have moved quickly to protect our country and prevent the spread of the virus to the UK.
