Travellers to UK to be tested after arrival

Updated 09 Feb 2021 @ 09:31
Travellers entering the UK are set to be tested for coronavirus a few days after they arrive, BBC News reports.
The new, expanded testing regime will be announced shortly.
The move is designed to help to track any new cases that might be brought into the country and make it easier to detect new variants.

It is in addition to the current rules that say travellers arriving in the UK, whether by boat, train or air, must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test to be allowed entry.
The test must be taken in 72 hours before travelling, and anyone arriving without one faces a fine of up to £500, with Border Force officials carrying out spot checks.
All passengers will still be required to quarantine for up to 10 days.

Travellers must provide contact details and their UK address. They can then travel - by public transport if necessary - to the place where they plan to self-isolate.
Meanwhile, from February 15, UK residents and Irish nationals arriving from certain countries will have to quarantine in hotels.
Passengers will have to stay in their rooms for 10 nights, with security guards accompanying them if they go outside.

The rules will apply to UK nationals and residents arriving from 33 ‘red list’ COVID-19 hotspots - mostly in South America and Africa - where it's feared variants may have already spread. Passengers will be expected to pay for the cost of the accommodation.
Non-UK travellers who have been in these countries in the 10 days before travelling are banned from entry.
Regardless of where travellers arrive from outside of the UK and Ireland, they will be required to take at least one test during their time in quarantine. That's in addition to the test passengers already need to take in the 72 hours before they travel to the U.K.
The type and number of tests that will be required has not been confirmed by the government, although there's speculation that arrivals will need to take one test on the second day of quarantine and another on the eighth day.
