Do I need to quarantine in the UK if I travel from France?

France is on the Amber watchlist in the UK. There is a chance France might move to 'Red' in the near future.

If you have been in or through France in the previous 10 days you must quarantine at home for 10 days when arriving in the UK.

A pre-departure test in France is required as well as PCR tests on days 2 & 8 in the UK while in quarantine. The Test to Release scheme can be used in England on day 5 to shorten the quarantine period.
