The next European country, which may to be subject to quarantine measures by all four nations of the UK, is Switzerland.

The threshold which the UK Government considers triggering quarantine conditions is a seven-day rate of 20 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 Evening Standard reports.

On the record so far, Switzerland is currently recording a seven-day rate of 20.7 cases per 100,000.

According to a report by The Times, It will ‘almost certainly’ be added to the red list this weekend,

A part of the measures to stay safe, Scotland already requires travellers from Switzerland to quarantine for two weeks.

In efforts to guard against a second wave of coronavirus, this development would be the latest extension of the two-week quarantine rules for all UK arrivals.

Meanwhile, it is also mandatory that all passengers – bar a handful of exemptions – are required to give contact details and the address where they will isolate.

It comes as France is looking to impose mandatory quarantine on Britons arriving in the country in the coming days.

Due to rising numbers of coronavirus cases in France, people who arrived in the UK from France after August 15 are required to self-isolate for 14 days.
