(Adds full list)
LONDON, June 3 (Reuters) – Britain added seven countries, including Egypt and Sri Lanka, to its “red list” of destinations that require hotel quarantine on return to England on Thursday, in a review that also saw Portugal move from “green” to “amber”.
No countries were added to the quarantine-free green list.
The full list of countries added to the “red list” is: Afghanistan, Bahrain, Costa Rica, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Sudan, and Trinidad & Tobago.
All changes to the lists will come into effect at 0400 (0300 GMT) on June 8, the government said.
