UK government set to announce 14-day quarantine on arrivals

Speaking at the daily Downing Street briefing on Covid-19, Sir Patrick Vallance, the UK Government's chief scientific adviser, said test results were not conclusive enough to catch every case of coronavirus.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said discussions would take place with Police Scotland to work out how the policy will be implemented. But she singled out the planned test, track and trace strategy as key to lifting quarantine.

Spain and Italy have introduced rules that mean global arrivals must self-isolate for two weeks, while yesterday Ireland gave further details for its own quarantine proposals.

Spain and Italy have introduced rules that mean worldwide arrivals must self-isolate for two weeks, while on Friday Ireland gave further details for its own quarantine proposals. Travelers will be subject to spot checks and fines of just over $1,200 for non-compliance.

The reason given for the measure is that as the transmission rate in the UK falls and the number of travellers arriving in the UK begins to increase in the coming months, imported cases may pose a larger threat as they could become a higher proportion of the overall number of infections in the UK and so increase the spread of the disease.

Others have questioned why Britain did not introduce quarantine earlier, like countries such as South Korea, Spain and the United States.

Arrivals will also be strongly advised to download the NHS contact tracing app at the border "once rolled out nationally". Removal from the country would be considered as a last resort for foreign nationals who refuse to comply with these public health measures.

The Prime Minister's key adviser was spotted in Durham - nearly 300 miles away from his London home - despite having had symptoms of coronavirus, a joint investigation by the Mirror and The Guardian revealed.

There will be exemptions for truckers and freight workers, front-line medics and seasonal agricultural laborers. They could also be contacted regularly during the whole quarantine and face random checks from public health authorities. If you continue to refuse to hand over your personal details after being fined, you could be arrested.

What happens if I don't self-isolate?

"So anyone breaking their 14-day quarantine could face a penalty of £1,000, and that will be a fixed penalty notice". If their suspicions are raised, police will be sent to your address to investigate.

And asked about the prospect of foreign holidays this summer, the home secretary added: "This is absolutely not about booking holidays. We understand that the UK's new rules will be assessed after three weeks so hopefully there will be an easing of the measures as we are doing in Italy".
