UK to impose 14-day quarantine travel rules, as Starmer warns of pandemic’s ‘hidden cost’ to mental health

People arriving in the UK from overseas face spot checks and £1,000 fines if they fail to self-isolate under a quarantine order intended to stem the spread of Covid-19.
Home secretary will order mandatory self-isolation of inbound travelers. Shortly after 5pm on Friday, Priti Patel will reveal details of the UK’s first mandatory quarantine order.


The home secretary Priti Patel will use Friday’s daily Downing Street to outline the plans – to be introduced in early June – despite an outcry from the travel industry.

Meanwhile, Labour leader Keir Starmer has called for a boost to mental health services to respond to the “hidden cost” of the pandemic in trauma, fear and uncertainty.
