The only 5 responses you need to the planned quarantine for people entering the UK
After a lockdown lasting 10 weeks and counting – although now completely devastated by recent changes to the guidance – the UK is only just getting around to introducing a quarantine for travellers entering the UK.
Under rules set to be published today, new arrivals to the UK will be able to go food shopping, change accommodation and use public transport during a 14-day quarantine period. Some MPs are concerned the rules will have little benefit for public health. https://t.co/dvbdLZl5zB

“I’m sorry, but we’re going to have to quarantine you.”
“Aw, I was going shopping later.”
“You can still do that.”
“Can I get a train?”
“Can I switch hotels?”
“Just, like, stay in a bit, if you can. Don’t inconvenience yourself, though.” https://t.co/T06mpBljB3

So you can be 'under quarantine' and do three things I haven't done since lockdown started? Right. https://t.co/95VC1xEFBS
