“[This includes] if new passengers get on or you or other passengers get off the transport you are on and mix with other people, then get on again.
“You don’t need to self-isolate beyond normal timescales if, during your transit stop in a non-exempt country no new passengers get on, no-one on-board gets off and mixes with people outside, or passengers get off but do not get back on.”
Mr Beake also discussed the impact of other countries currently facing the threat of a travel ban – with France, in particular, causing major concerns.
“I think one thing that could have a really really big impact is if France joins the UK quarantine list,” he said.
“It’s not there yet but there is concern because if you look at what they’ve been announcing in Pairs in the last 24 hours or so, they’ve just recorded their highest number of daily cases for two months.
“The number of people who sadly lost their lives there has now topped 30 thousand and that’s behind only the UK and Italy.”
