Tourists are currently able to travel to a certain number of countries without self-isolating.
Recent changes to the state’s list of travel corridors on Sunday expanded the exemptions to include the Canary Islands, Denmark, the Maldives and Mykonos.
This means anyone returning to the UK from these locations after 4 a.m. on October 25 will not need to self-isolate unless they have transited in another country that has not been released.
Countries that were recently removed from the Safe Travel List include Italy, San Marino and the Vatican.
Those returning to the UK from these places after 4 a.m. on October 18 must self-isolate now.
