From Monday morning, passengers arriving at London Heathrow airport became the first travelers heading into a 10-day quarantine.
New rules are in place for all British and Irish citizens and UK residents who arrive in England after visiting a 'high-risk' country. From now on they will have to self-isolate in hotels and pay $2,436.44 (£1,750) for the accommodation.
