The UK government has confirmed that France would be removed from the UK’s travel corridor safety list, following a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases.

The decision will mean holidaymakers arriving into the UK from France, after 0400 on Saturday morning, will be forced to self-isolate for 14 days or face a fine.

The Netherlands, Malta, Monaco, British overseas territory the Turks and Caicos Islands, and the island of Aruba, a Dutch constituent country in the Caribbean, are also being removed from the safe list.

Until recently, she worked as a clinical first responder for Aspen Medical, an international agency contracted by the federal government to help nursing homes deal with COVID-19 outbreaks.In April she was sent into Newmarch House, the western Sydney nursing home where 19 residents died with the virus. On Monday, July 20, she was sent to an Estia aged care facility in Heidelberg. After experiencing what she did that day, she says she will never work a shift for Aspen again.
