  • UK ‘staycations’ in huge demand after new quarantine rules
  • Joe Biden issues call to make mask wearing compulsory for three months
  • Government secures access for two new potential vaccines
  • The Government will today reveal a list of up to 60 countries exempt from a UK quarantine, effectively giving the go-ahead for holidays this summer.

    The list, expected to be revealed as a ‘traffic light system’, will also coincide with the loosening of the Foreign Office advice, which has warned against all but essential travel since mid-March.

    Spain, Italy, France and Germany are expected to appear on the list, which will be released at lunchtime.

    The announcement will mean English holidaymakers returning to the UK from 60 countries will not need to self-isolate for 14 days. The devolved nations are due to set out their own rules at a later date.

    The rule change will come into effect from Saturday July 10.
