Austria and Germany now added to high risk together with Australia and others, the criteria being confirmation that the new variant exists. If their yardstick is confirmation of new variant community transmission for any country to then be added to the 7 day PB list then quite frankly they have finally lost the plot.

It would break my mother’s heart if I cancelled my trip back to the UK. With UAE also high risk for no reason there is no viable plan B except possibly Finland. I’m seriously considering my options.
