New travel restrictions come into force on Monday 15 February. If you arrive in England from 15 February, you will need to either:
- Self-isolate in the place they're staying for 10 days, or
- Quarantine in a government approved hotel for 10 days
What you need to do depends on where you have been in the ten days before you arrive in England.
You must also get two coronavirus tests after you arrive in England - you'll need to book these before you travel.
