Starting June 8, International Travelers to UK Must Quarantine 14 days


In an effort to contain coronavirus in the United Kingdom, international visitors arriving to the nation after June 8 will have to self-quarantine for 14 days. As the BBC reports, Travelers must identify where they will isolate themselves, and they will be subject to spot-checks to assure their isolation and fines for those who do not obey the rules.

Naturally there are exceptions. Truck drivers, among other workers (such as nuclear emergency responders!), do not have to quarantine. The edict also does not apply to travel from Ireland, the Channel Islands, or the Isle of Man.

The government will arrange quarantine accommodations for those who do not have their own, but at a charge.
