Coronavirus: Two-week quarantines to be imposed on new arrivals to UK | Politics News


Two-week quarantines will be imposed on new arrivals to the UK from 8 June with fines for anyone who breaches the measures, the home secretary has announced.

Priti Patel added during Downing Street’s daily briefing that mandatory self-isolation would not apply to people coming from Ireland, medics tackling COVID-19 and seasonal agricultural workers.

The measure is aimed at preventing a new wave of coronavirus from overseas.

Passengers would have to fill in a form providing their contact and travel information so they can be traced if infections arise.

They could also be contacted regularly during the 14 days to ensure their compliance.
