Denmark has been removed from the Westminster government’s quarantine-free travel corridor list over concerns about the spread of a new strain of coronavirus in the country’s mink farms.
Transport secretary Grant Shapps announced the measures during the early hours of Friday morning (6 November), shortly after Germany and Sweden were removed from the travel corridor list.
Denmark is reportedly planning to cull millions of mink to contain the situation.
A 14-day self-isolation requirement for those returning to the UK from Denmark came into force with immediate effect at 4am on Friday.
"I have taken the swift decision to urgently remove Denmark from the government’s travel corridor list as a precautionary measure given recent developments," said Shapps.
