Do not travel if you have COVID-19 symptoms or are self-isolating. Get a test and follow the stay at home guidance.

COVID-19 has not gone away, so it’s important to remember the actions you can take to keep yourself and others safe. Everybody needs to continue to act carefully and remain cautious.

Please be considerate to the public transport operators that are doing all they can to keep their passengers as safe as possible. All Isle of Wight Ferry’s and the hovercraft will be asking their passengers to use hand sanitiser and wear face coverings. Firstbus, Stage coach and the park and ride will allow seating in all seats and they will be asking people to follow the government guidance.

Recommendations from government:

  • wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport
  • limit the close contact you have with those you do not usually live with

There are no restrictions on travel within England. You should check the rules at your destination if you’re planning to travel to Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, or to Ireland or the Channel Islands as there may be restrictions in place.

The Government has introduced a traffic light system for international travel. You should not travel to countries or territories on the red or amber lists.
