Portugal and Mauritius removed from England's 'travel ban' red list

Portugal, including Madeira and the Azores, is being removed from England's COVID travel red list - meaning returning Britons no longer have to quarantine when they come home.

Mauritius is also being taken off the list, in a move that could open the way for tourists to go to those two countries after the government allows international travel again.

After Friday, anyone coming from those two countries will be required to self-isolate for ten days on arrival to the UK at home and take COVID-19 tests at home.
