The UK plans to start mandatory hotel quarantine starting Feb. 15. Ground staff at Heathrow Airport

Authorities in the UK plan to mandate a 10 - day quarantine for all passengers returning from COVID-19 hotspots starting Feb15th. The quarantine must be completed in a government-designated hotel at the traveler’s own expense. This mandate will apply to permitted arrivals from more than 30 countries, including the UAE, Portugal, South Africa, and all South American countries. Authorities will announce additional details in the coming days.


Ground crew members, including baggage handlers, security staff, engineers, and other airport workers, at London Heathrow Airport are planning a series of strikes Feb. 5th, 9th, 13th, 16th, and 18th. Although airport authorities claim that there will be no major changes to flight schedules, check-in and security procedures will likely be prolonged, causing longer wait times.
