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

Italy is on the Amber list in the UK.

If you have been in or through Italy in the previous 10 days, and are not exempt by reason of being fully vaccinated, you must quarantine at home for 10 days when arriving in the UK.

A pre-departure test in Italy 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.

Adults who have been fully vaccinated in the UK, US or EU and under 18s arriving are exempt from quarantine but must still take the Day 2 test.
