UK Updates Guidance for Students from Red List Countries

On Wednesday, the UK Government reinstated the “Red List” and quarantine requirements. Unaccompanied minors arriving from a “Red List” country to attend a higher education or further education institution in England or Wales may quarantine in accommodations provided by their school, with a host family, or managed quarantine hotel.

This guidance applies to minors (students under 18 years old) and their families. Students over 18 years of age must follow the standard quarantine rules for red list arrivals.

Student Requirements

Eligible students must coordinate with their higher education or further education institution in advance of their arrival.
