They said it if it is weekly or biweekly they allow it

But only if your work has you doing it

I have had 100 emails with the home office about it

HOME OFFICE EMAIL RECEIVED 2nd Oct 2020:
If you do not travel to the UK at least once a week every week then you would need to self-isolate in line with the rules. Ad hoc visits can be any day of the week, but if itís not at least once a week then you are not exempt.

Therefore, If you believe that you can demonstrate that your work-related duties are covered by the criteria of the exemption category you should carry a letter from your company to that effect with your personal details, contact details of your employer and details of the work you will be doing (as well as photo id if relevant). This would be presented as evidence to a BF officer should it be required as part of a spot check.
This user would like to thank Waterloo for this useful post:

Are you sure about going out to buy food? I was told that it was ok to stop and buy food on the way to the isolation location but once there the only valid reason for going out is for medical reasons.
says on the site, well it used to say you could leave to buy food.

yes if it's for WORK, but if the travel is part of an order for visitation of minor kids they don't exempt you

If you live in the UK & work abroad you can travel weekly, those people would usually have G permits in CH.
Seems a reasonable exemption.

Not really, you are looking for an exemption to visit kids, which clearly is not necessary.

Then go to the UK at least once a week then. Everybody you asked said no, which is your issue

The court order can be complied with, you just need to do quarantine like everyone else.

the court order can not be complied with if you are isolating. I asked about an exemption as they exist for biz travellers. Ok they aren't happy with helping but it's odd people think it's not a worthy exemption.

The court order does not make you return to CH, you can self isolate with the children. You can leave at any time.

You are looking for an exemption that does not exist. I think it's odd you think you should be given an exemption.

Re: What to expect when landing in Switzerland from England

Have you spoken to the court? I would have thought the court should give an exemption on the court order, due the laws on quarantine and the exceptional circumstances at the moment.

I would be interested in the wording of the court order, I am sure it can be complied with, just the OP may be in quarantine indefinitely unless she stays in the UK. It's about looking for solutions to a problem.

Not very practical though, especially if you need to work.

Plenty of people are working from home, flying backwards & forwards is a choice.

Flying to the UK weekly or fortunately might also be an issue for you, but then the thread is not about you.

No. I'm just pointing out, that being in permanent quarantine may not be an option. I would have thought getting a temporary reprieve on the court order would be the best way to go.

From other posts it's not clear that she has a residents permit or an income, so living in an expensive country when your children live somewhere cheaper seems unnecessarily complicated at best.
The divorce was in the UK, so this is a UK court order we are talking about, neither had Swiss resident permits at the time of the divorce either.

Well the kids are in Swiss, you're right I don't have a permit, this I have appealed but the court hasn't replied. The UK divorce was later modified with a Swiss divorce.

I can't be in self isolation 2 weeks either side and work well, you know not many weddings happened this year sadly.

So you're a tad confused. I am trying to still see me child and have some sort of life although been totally shagged by the courts.
