Travelers arriving in UK from seven Greek islands must be isolated for 14 days, from 4 p.m. on Wednesday 9 September, according to a statement from the United Kingdom Secretary of Transport, Grant Shapps, on Monday 7 September.
The announcement was made as part of precautionary measures to limit the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) in the United Kingdom.
The 7 Greek islands of the English list are Lesvos, Tinos, Serifos, Mykonos, Crete, Santorini and Zakynthos.
Following Shapps' announcement, the Foreign Affairs, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) updated its travel advice for Greece, proposing only essential travel to the islands of Lesvos, Tinos, Serifos, Mykonos, Crete, Santorini and Zakynthos.
"This is based on the current COVID-19 risk assessment. The rest of Greece remains free from FCDO advice on all unnecessary international travel", the FCDO notes.
In early September, Scotland announced that travelers arriving from anywhere in Greece must be quarantined for 14 days upon arrival.
