    The French embassy in London has tweeted the following:

    “France imposes quarantine on UK arrivals”. That is no surprise to me. This may, or may not, be the start of reciprocal (quarantine, and other) actions by other countries, in response to the UK’s 14-day quarantine.

    And also, how will travellers arriving in the UK travel to their place of quarantine? Will there be a quarantine coach on the London Tube, and Heathrow Express, and trains? Will they be separated from the UK population?

    Rules have now been published on how the UK Govt intends to implement it:

    Spain introduced similar rules – effective 15th May – although am unaware of its implementation methodology.

    Reassuring to know that you can leave your place of quarantine :

    if there’s an emergency, for example there’s a fire at the place you’re staying

    What happens to the lorry/truck drivers bringing our daily fresh vegetables and fruits from France and the continent! When are the drivers expected to start their 14 days self-quarantine; at the point of entry to ports, after customs clearance at some local hotel, or reporting to their duty stations? This could also apply to the French drivers going back home.

    My mind boggles just thinking about it, and trust that we won’t be running short of our daily supply of fresh fruits and vegetables from the continent!

    Lorry drivers are one of the many exclusions.
