UK to impose 14-day quarantine for international arrivals from 8 June – EU Reporter

Britain will introduce a 14-day quarantine for almost all international travellers from 8 June, Interior Minister Priti Patel said on Friday (22 May), with anyone breaking the rules facing a £1,000 ($1,218) fine, write Estelle Shirbon and Alistair Smout.

The government said there would be some exemptions, including road haulage and freight workers, medical professionals travelling to help with the fight against the coronavirus and those coming from Ireland.

“Now we are past the peak of this virus, we must take steps to guard against imported cases triggering a resurgence of this deadly disease,” Patel said at the government’s daily news conference.
