Does anyone know is the UK a country to which an emergency brake has been applied?

    or where is the list of countries?

    I'm trying to understand if travelling from UK I need a PCR test beforehand and quarantine on arrival. This link


    If your journey originates in a country to which an emergency brake has not been applied

    If you have valid proof of vaccination, no travel-related testing or quarantine will be necessary.

    Any help appreciated.

    No emergency brakes have been applied, we haven't even gotten going yet! It'll probably happen if something goes drastically wrong in a country after non-essential travel is allowed from the 19th.

    The emergency brake is a EU concept as the UK are not in the EU...

    Germany had effectively banned all travel from the UK for while, the relented last week but I would expect to see the UK flagged if the trend continues

    Currently from the UK requires a PCR test and then a 10 day period and a further PCR test
