UK Bans Non-Resident Arrivals From Denmark Over Mink Fears

The British government has banned freight drivers who are not UK residents and who have traveled through Denmark over the past 14 days from entering England due to the stricter travel restrictions that were implemented on the country after witnessing widespread COVID-19 outbreaks at mink farms.

The British government has banned freight drivers who are not UK residents and who have traveled through Denmark over the past 14 days from entering England due to the stricter travel restrictions that were implemented on the country after witnessing widespread COVID-19 outbreaks at mink farms.

British residents that have returned to the UK are now required to quarantine themselves with other members of their household until two weeks have passed since they were last in Denmark.

“Given the significant unknowns regarding the new mutation of COVID-19 originating in Denmark we have moved quickly to protect our citizens and prevent the spread of the virus to the U.K,” said a representative from the Department for Transport.

It has said that the mutation of the virus has been found in 12 infected people by minks.
