Cyprus and Lithuania put on travel quarantine list

Cyprus and Lithuania are the latest countries to be removed from the UK’s travel corridors list.

It means anyone returning will have to self-isolate for 14 days from 4am on Sunday, November 1.

The Mirror reports the decision follows concerns over rising number of coronavirus cases in these destinations.

Cyprus’ seven-day rate of cases per 100,000 people has reached 112, while Lithuania is on 140.

“From 4am Sunday 1st November, if you arrive into the UK from these destinations you will need to self-isolate.”

The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office has now updated its travel advice to advise against all but essential travel to the two countries.
