Coronavirus (COVID-19) is currently making unwanted headlines across the world, due to the unwelcome spread of this new and contagious infection, which started in the city of Wuhan, China, and has rapidly spread from there. There is now some FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) advice against all or all-but-essential travel to certain countries, or areas within countries, due to the widespread nature of the epidemic in these places, and none of our policies would be valid if you travelled to one of these, or failed to move to another area, once the FCO classification had changed.
You can check up-to-date FCO advice for all countries here: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice
