BBC NEWS: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned people should not be holidaying in amber list countries after a minister said people could go and visit friends.
The UK has issued three lists, including Green, Amber, and Red. The UK gov’t said If conditions change in a country or territory, it can be moved from the amber list to the red list. If that is likely to happen, this will generally be flagged in the Amber watchlist. If there is a sudden change in conditions, a country or territory may be moved between lists without warning.
The confusion arose after Environment Secretary George Eustice said people could go to those countries if they quarantined when they returned.
It comes after news that some holiday companies are refusing refunds to such destinations. That is because it is now legal to travel to countries on the amber list.
“There are some limited reasons why it might be acceptable to travel – for work purposes, protecting essential services or compassionate reasons such as a funeral or care of a family member – but otherwise people should not be travelling to these countries.”
