Italy Reduces Quarantine for UK Travelers

Italy will allow passengers from the United Kingdom, Austria, and Israel to undergo a shorter, five-day quarantine on entering the country under new regulations that take effect on Tuesday.

The three countries have been included in a list of over 30 countries, most in the European Union, in which the mandatory quarantine is shortened to five days from 14.

In Austria, however, the two-week quarantine is still in effect for those from the Tyrol, where the South African coronavirus variant has been circulating.

People from countries on the list with fewer restrictions still have to submit a negative test taken within 48 hours of arrival in Italy, and take a second test following their five-day quarantine.

In January, Italy banned travelers who had stayed in or passed through the UK as the new, more infectious British variant of coronavirus gained traction.

The first country in Europe to face the full force of the coronavirus pandemic, Italy has so far reported more than 111,000 Covid-19 related deaths.

Russia denies Western claims that it has sent troops into eastern Ukraine to help the rebels, but officials say the army could intervene if Ukraine tries to retake the area by force. The troops’ buildup has raised sharp concerns in the West.

Ukrainian forces and Russia-backed separatists have been fighting in eastern Ukraine since shortly after Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula. More than 14,000 people have died in the conflict, and efforts to negotiate a political settlement have stalled.

US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken warned On Sunday that if Russia acts recklessly, or aggressively, there will be costs and consequences.
