The government has released its strategy for the country’s recovery from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Included in this plan are new measures for international travel, which are designed to minimise the risk of transmission from abroad. In addition to increased information on the social distancing regime at all UK borders, anyone entering the country will be required to provide their accommodation and contact information, and to self-isolate for 14 days. Arrivals who are unable to provide an address at which they will self-isolate will be provided with government-arranged accommodation. The use of the NHS contact tracing app will also be strongly encouraged. The measures will not come into force on 13 May 2020, but will be implemented ‘as soon as possible’, with new guidance and further detail to be issued by the government ‘shortly’. Journeys taking place within the Common Travel Area are exempt from these measures.
