Brits travelling to France could face quarantine as cases rise

The British government are "closely monitoring" coronavirus cases in France as the country's cases hit a two-month high. New infections in France have risen to levels not seen since late May, with more than a rise of more than 1,600 in 24 hours. There are reports that the country may be added to the UK's quarantine list.

This would mean that the thousands of British holidaymakers who are currently in France, and the countless others booked to visit in the rest of August would have to self-isolate for 14 days.

The UK implemented the quarantine list for countries outside of the "common travel area" in July, but since then countries such as Spain, Luxembourg and Belgium have been added to the quarantine list as cases in those countries have risen.

As well as the 14-day quarantine, the government is advising against non-essential travel to these destinations.
