Thanks for the info and welcome note! Although we have been members for a very long time we have not really participated until now. We are aware that there is discussion in the head sheds about quarantine going into France and other countries heading south and wondered if anyone had any further info. Having been locked up for six months we are a bit stir crazy and inclined to take a chance and escape if they will let us. We have travelled extensively in Europe each year since we started so we are reasonably able to wing it safely if they will let us.

I believe the Seven Day 'voluntry' quarantine request remains in effect for people staying in France, but does not apply to people transiting the country.

We've been in France for almost 2 weeks....no documentation requested at French passport control at the tunnel (apart from passports of course!) and no mention of any need to quarantine.

France has been quieter than usual for this time of year...hardly any Brits (only seen 4), a fair number of Belgians, lots of Dutch...not so much in western France, but once we got to the Ardeche and Alsace they were the majority. In fact on our current campsite in Alsace I reckon they outnumber the French!

We've found most shops and restaurants pretty good with mask wearing and sanitiser. Some people don't keep their distance - but that's no different at home. There's a noticeable lack of tour groups in the Alsace wine villages, meaning they're much more pleasant to visit (though I do feel sorry for the businesses who rely tourism) All in all, I feel as safe here as I would if we'd gone away in the UK.

I believe this is only if you have tested positive or been in contact with someone who has! Not when entering the country.
I would hope in that case you would stay home and self - isolate and not travel anywhere whether it be in the UK or abroad.

One would imagine so unless you are already in France, in which case you’d isolate in your MoHo just as many do in the normal course of their travels these days!
