Written by on February 10, 2021

TRAVELLERS TO THE UNITED KINGDOM CAUGHT VIOLATING NEWLY IMPOSED QUARANTINE RESTRICTIONS COULD FACE A HEAVY FINE OF UP TO 10,000 BRITISH POUNDS ($13,800), AND 10 YEARS IN PRISON, AS THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT TIGHTENS MEASURES TO CURB THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 AND ITS NEW VARIANTS.

THE UK’S DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE SAID THAT THE TOUGH NEW ENFORCEMENT RULES, WHICH INCLUDE MANDATORY HOTEL QUARANTINES FOR THE FIRST TIME, WILL COME INTO FORCE ON FEBRUARY 15.

HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE SECRETARY MATT HANCOCK SAID THAT THE NEW MEASURES WERE NECESSARY “TO PROTECT THE PROGRESS THAT WE’VE WORKED SO HARD TO ACCOMPLISH.”
