Mandatory Quarantine for all Incoming Passengers from the UK

 

As from tomorrow, 22nd December, a mandatory 14-day quarantine will be applying for all incoming passengers on any UK flight. In a statement, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health said that this was being done in light of recent developments, whereby a variant of the COVID-19 virus was found in some patients.

The Health Ministry said that this is a temporary decision, adding that local health authorities are closely monitoring the situation in the UK, whilst also participating in discussions on a European level, which should eventually lead to a common position and direction from the EU, for all its member states.

 

 

Some EU countries have already taken the decision to suspend all flights from the UK over the coming days, whilst UK PM has ordered that the affected areas go into Tier 4 of COVID restrictions, which will impact heavily on the Christmas celebrations, which are already set to be different than what anyone is used to.
