Travelers traveling from France to the United Kingdom will have to prove they have no symptoms of coronavirus or have been in contact with a confirmed case within 14 days of departure, the British government said on Friday.
The United Kingdom said travelers returning from France before or after Aug. 15 should be separated when they return, due to the high rates of COVID-19 infection in France.
Confinement of solitary confinement has reached Britain’s favorite holiday resorts in mid-summer and as the tourism industry struggles to survive.
Earlier this year the government was criticized for being too late to shut up at the onset of the disease when it was thought that most of the cases came from holiday employers returning from Italy. The UK’s segregation policy began in June.
Other countries, including Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Croatia, and Austria, are already on the government-sponsored list.
