In perhaps the best piece of news for the UK hospitality industry in several weeks, the Canary Islands have been added to the quarantine safe list.
The decision comes following a decrease in confirmed cases of coronavirus in the destinations, and means guests returning from the islands to the UK will no longer have to self-isolate for 14-days.
Officials have begun to introduce a new approach to quarantine, separating some islands from mainland countries. As a result, seven Greek islands have been removed from the safe list.
Scotland and Wales have both asked arrivals from Portugal and parts of Greece to isolate for 14-days on arrival, but England and Northern Ireland have held off.

Quarantine restrictions will be imposed from tomorrow on people travelling from Greece to Scotland, the Scottish government has announced. Welsh authorities confirmed a similar move.
