Chris Chope Seeks Clarity on Sardinia vs Italy Travel Conundrum
To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 1 July 2021 to Question 21143 on travel: coronavirus, for what reason Sardinia is not regarded as a separate territory and destination from Italy.
The Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC) currently reviews over 250 countries and territories to inform Ministers upon current international travel policies. The JBC does not routinely separate all islands from their mainland territories. However, various islands/island groups are closely monitored regarding wider public health issues within regions including virus prevalence.
