Therefore, if you are affected by the 90+ days policy, you do have the option to find a replacement to take over your licence agreement.

What Is The Likelihood Of Coronavirus Spreading In The Residence?

The UK Government is expecting and planning for the significant spread of the virus in the population, and that means it is likely there will be cases. When we have a case or cases at one of our properties, we will act quickly and decisively to ensure those affected receive the appropriate support, guidance, and treatment and are able to self-isolate. We will also ensure all residents are given the appropriate information and advice to manage the risks. If we or Public Health England believe you have been in contact with a known case, you will be informed, and offered the appropriate support.

I Am Planning To Travel Overseas What Should I Do?

Please consult and observe the latest advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) on travelling outside the UK. The current advice is to avoid non-essential travel. Countries around the globe are imposing heightened health screenings on entry or exit at their borders and many have taken the decision to suspend travel/ entry to foreign nationals. Several airlines are taking the decision to suspend flight operations to some destinations experiencing severe outbreaks of the COVID-19 virus and due to the decrease in demand for services are beginning to reduce flight schedules and cancel flights. We strongly advise travellers to confirm their flight status in advance of travel, to allow additional time for immigration and health screenings at airports and check the latest Foreign and Commonwealth Office entry requirements and updates for your destination.
