Decisions to place countries, including Mauritius, Turks and Caicos Islands and Bermuda on the ‘green list’ are taken by Ministers informed by evidence including the Joint Biosecurity Centre’s analysis, as well as other relevant information about the risk of the spread of variant. The advice, evidence and methodology which informs these decisions relates to on-going development of Government policy and therefore cannot be published at this time.
