The following is taken from an email circular released by the Department for Transport.

The Government last night (November 7) extended measures to prevent the potential spread of a variant strain of Covid-19.

All travellers except for British nationals or residents of the UK who had been in or through Denmark in the last 14 days will now be stopped from coming into the UK. This includes non-resident HGV drivers. UK drivers need to self-isolate on return for 14 days.

All passenger vessels and freight accompanied from Denmark will be stopped from entering the UK.

This follows the release of further information from health authorities in Denmark reporting outbreaks of coronavirus (COVID-19) in mink farms, with a variant strain of the virus spreading to some local people.
Why is the Government doing this?

Denmark was removed from the UK’s travel corridor list on Friday. Non-British or resident visitors who had come from or through Denmark were banned from arriving in the UK from 4am on Saturday 6 November.

Anyone who has arrived from Denmark within the last two weeks now needs to isolate along with their households for 14 days.

Passenger locator form

British Nationals and residents who are returning from Denmark will be required to show a complete passenger locator form on arrival into the UK.

Read more about the travel ban and expanded self-isolation requirements, which will be reviewed after seven days.
