  • UK imposes 14 day quarantine on all travelers from Spain after recent spike in COVID-19 cases there - July 25, 2020

    The government had to act "rapidly and decisively" to impose a quarantine on people arriving in the UK from Spain, a minister has said.

    Health minister Helen Whately said the UK virus rate must be kept down to avoid a second spike.

    The new coronavirus travel rule was announced on Saturday evening following a spike in the number of new cases in Spain this week.

    It came into force less than six hours after it was confirmed by the government, and requires travellers returning from all parts of Spain - including the islands of Majorca, Menorca and Ibiza - to provide an address where they will self-isolate for 14 days or risk a fine.

    During those two weeks, people must not go out to work, school, or public areas, or have visitors except for essential support. They should not go out to buy food if they can rely on others.
