Post-pandemic travel in Europe is shaping up as the battle of the quarantines with France imposing two-week reciprocal lockdowns on its neighbors when travel resumes next month.
Travelers to France from the UK will have to self-isolate for 14 days from June 8, the French government said last week. The announcement came on the heels of a similar quarantine plan announced by the British government from the same date for travelers from France, the BBC reported.
Upon arriving in the UK travelers will be required to inform government authorities where they will quarantine, and face enforcement through random spot checks and fines of more than $1,200, said Home Secretary Priti Patel at a press briefing in London Friday.
Truck drivers, health workers, seasonal farm workers and travelers from Ireland will be exempt from the UK quarantine measures, she said.
