GOV.UK Exemptions Guidance

Following confirmation of a 14-day quarantine and requirement to provide information for those arriving in the UK from 8 June, the government has published exemption guidance for specific travellers. Many of the exemptions are highly specific, although some are slightly more general (e.g. exemptions 26 and 37).
