Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said more information on the possibility of foreign travel will be unveiled on April 5.
This is one week before the Government’s Global Travel Taskforce is due to resume meetings.
Speaking at a press conference, the PM urged Britons to wait until they had heard from the Taskforce before making any holiday plans.
“A lot of people do want to know about what’s going to happen on the holiday front and I know there’s a great deal of curiosity and interest,” he said.
“All I can say is it’s just too early to say and my advice is to everybody to wait for the global travel task force to report.
“We’ve heard already that there are other European countries where the disease is now rising so things certainly look difficult for the time being but we will be able to say more we hope in a few days’ time, I certainly hope to say more by April 5.”
