Dumped Love Island cast forced to quarantine as Majorca is put on amber list

Majorca, where Love Island is filmed has been put back on the amber list, so Islanders will have to quarantine upon returning back to the UK.

Weeks after the Balearic islands were added to the green watchlist, a surge in Covid-19 cases has forced the government to move the holiday destination to the amber list instead.

British travellers coming from the group of islands will have to quarantine for 10 days after re-entering Britain.

Grant Schnapps, the Secretary for State for Transport, confirmed the news on Twitter on Wednesday.

He said: "We’re also moving the Balearic Islands and British Virgin Islands to the amber list – previously on the green watchlist.

"Please check latest travel advice before you travel as countries and territories may have extra requirements before you get there.

"From 4.00am Monday 19th July Bulgaria and Hong Kong will be added to the green list and Croatia & Taiwan the green watchlist of destinations.”

The tweet continued: "Also, from 19/07 if you’re fully Vaccinated in the UK you can return to England from amber countries and territories without needing to quarantine.”

"Four countries and territories will join the red list to safeguard our domestic vaccine rollout. We’ll keep these measures under review and be guided by the latest data – we won’t hesitate to take action if needed to protect public health.”

Any young Brits who have only been half jabbed or received one vaccination will have to quarantine.

Fully vaccinated Brits not needing to isolate when traveling back from amber list countries has been proposed but not implemented yet.

The MP defended the government's traffic light system, as the categories mean: “people can see, broadly-speaking, where these countries are classified".

Mr Schnapps continued: "We're not in control of this virus, particularly in how it affects other countries, their levels of vaccinations, their level of genomic sequencing, their testing regimes."

Most Love Island contestants will have to isolate as it's highly unlikely that they would have had both of their Covid vaccinations.
