Which Greek islands are on England’s quarantine list?

Just one island remains on the quarantine list – Mykonos.

This is the same for Scotland, Wales and England, who previously had different rules depending on the islands.

Anyone visiting Mykonos from the UK will have to quarantine for two weeks on their return.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps changed the restrictions for Lesbos, Tinos, Serifos, Santorini and Zakynthos earlier this month, which left restrictions just for Mykonos and Crete.

Crete was removed from the list yesterday, which will come into effect from this weekend.
