Five Greek islands added to England's quarantine-free list

Five Greek islands have been added to the English government’s quarantine exemption list.

Arrivals in England from Lesbos, Santorini, Serifos, Tinos and Zakynthos – also known as Zante – will no longer have to self-isolate for 14 days from 4am on Saturday following a decrease in cases.

No countries are being removed from the travel corridor list.

Italy maintains its exemption despite currently recording a seven-day rate of 31.6 coronavirus cases per 100,000 people.

A rate of 20 is the threshold above which ministers have considered triggering quarantine conditions. But the policy may be changing as the UK’s own rate now exceeds 150.

As the summer season draws to an end, there is still time to get away to Greece, which has been one of this year's top European destinations. And now with the 5 islands taken off the quarantine list there's even more options for your Greek getaway.
