UK to impose 14-day quarantine on travelers arriving from abroad

Foreign travelers arriving in the UK will have to quarantine for 14 days. – Caro / Sorge / SIPA

No exceptions. Northern Ireland Minister Brandon Lewis announced on Friday that “people arriving in the UK will have to quarantine themselves” in order to “contain” the rate of transmission of the disease.

He added that “returning UK citizens will be able to quarantine themselves at home”, but that “visitors will need to make arrangements to carry out this quarantine for 14 days”. Travelers will be subject to random checks and offenders will be fined 1,000 pounds (around 1,117 euros).

No exceptions planned “yet”

This measure, which will be reviewed “every three weeks” according to him, must accompany the gradual deconfinement of the country which must start from June 1 in case of progress in the fight against the pandemic.

Brandon Lewis clarified that there is no exemption “for the time being” for travelers arriving from countries with low transmission rates. Exceptions are, however, made for road transporters and medical personnel, as well as for the Irish, but not for travelers arriving from France, as London and Paris had recently suggested.
