I will start working in London from November and will probably move there from Germany (as a German citizen) few days/weeks before in order to search for a flat or shared house.
In the case that Germany gets classified as a high risk area by the UK before I arrive there, what are my possibilities? And does the UK usually give some buffer time before applying the new classifications or does it happen immediately upon announcement?
How can I quarantine if I don't have a home yet and need to visit some apartments?
Does it even make sense to quarantine in a shared flat (private room, shared bathroom), if I find one?
I couldn't find any information handling those special cases. Also, a test before arriving to England doesn't seem to be enough for avoiding quarantine.
