The Return of Quarantine For UK Arrivals in the Swiss Alps

J2SkiNews posted 28-Nov



As has been widely reported, in response to the new coronavirus variant, The UK government has announced that all arrivals must self-isolate on arrival back in the UK, take a PCR test on day 2 and continue to self-isolate until they obtain a negative result.

In addition though there are signs of increased restrictions in destination ski nations as they try to slow the spread of the new strain following the identification of several cases in the UK.

The UK Government's travel advice to Switzerland says they now require UK arrivals to self-isolate for 10 days regardless of any test results.
"Updated entry requirements for arrivals from the UK. From 8pm on 27 November 2021, you must have proof of vaccination and proof of a negative COVID-19 test result to enter Switzerland. On entry, you must also self-quarantine for 10 days. This is an emerging issue and more detail will be provided as the Swiss Government make further announcements."

Currently other major ski nations do not appear to have re-introduced quarantine for Brits but it is a fast-evolving situation.

The 2+ day quarantine requirement in the UK is due to be reviewed a week before Christmas.

All a bit of a wotsit really.
Main problem is how to maintain any motivation to get the knees and legs working again when I may not be able to use them next year.

Best chance the UK skier has got as 'new' variant is not actually new, is it turns out to be a weaker but more infectious strain and alpine countries backtrack on entry protocols.

If they don't, another season write off.

On this subject, does anyone know how flying into Geneva and transiting to France is going to be affected - will we all have to stay in the airport for 10 days??!

From what I have read on numerous Facebook posts, I don't think you will be allowed on the flight.
