Do I need to inform anyone at nursery if I have a holiday planned?

Government guidance on travel is consistently changing and it is important for the safety of everyone that we follow the most current advice. We ask our families to be open about any foreign travel from anyone in the household so that we can ensure that we do not expose our nursery to any unnecessary risk.

Currently you are not required to self-isolate when you arrive in England, if you are travelling from countries that are:

  • covered by the travel corridor exemption
  • within the common travel area (Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man)
  • British overseas territories

You will need to self-isolate if you visited or made a transit stop in a country or territory that is not on the list in the 14 days before you arrive in England.

This applies to all travel to England, by train, ferry, coach, air or any other route.

The list for the countries covered by the travel corridor exemption is here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-travel-corridors#countries-and-territories-with-no-self-isolation-requirement-on-arrival-in-england.
