United Kingdom requires arriving passengers to quarantine for 14 days

United Kingdom requires arriving passengers to quarantine for 14 days”

"The government will require all worldwide arrivals not on a short list of exemptions to self-isolate in their accommodation for fourteen days on arrival into the U.K".

The UK government has chose to impose a 14-day quarantine period for all foreigners coming to Britain from overseas.

The latest government guidance include "stay at home as much as possible, work at home if you can, limit contact with other people, keep your distance if you go out (two meters apart where possible), wash your hands regularly".

In telephone talks, the two leaders vowed to work together to prevent the risk of cross-border contamination as COVID-19 infections finally begin to fall, the Elysee said.

Mr Johnson and French president Emmanuel Macron previously agreed that quarantine measures would not apply between France and the United Kingdom "at this stage", according to a joint statement issued after the address.

Those arriving from Ireland or France would be exempt from the new rules, and the quarantine requirement is apparently only for air travelers, not those arriving by rail or ship.

Willie Walsh, chief executive of BA's parent company, International Airlines Group, said there was "nothing positive" in the Prime Minister's address and expressed his surprise.

But according to the Irish Independent, the Irish government won't make a return gesture for people arriving by air from the UK.

Ministers dislike comparisons of the headline death toll, saying that excess mortality - the number of deaths from all causes that exceed the average for the time of year - is more meaningful because it is internationally comparable.
