What you need to know about self-isolation and quarantine if you're planning international travel
We’ve updated our guidance on self-isolation and quarantine for staff who are planning international travel.
- Do I have to self-isolate / quarantine if I return to the UK from international travel? If so, is this counted as paid sick leave or do I have to take unpaid leave?
There’s also an update on hotel managed quarantine for staff who are travelling to England from, or through, a red list country.
- Reimbursing quarantine hotel costs due to travelling through or from a red list country as of 1 September 2021
