UK quarantine policy will be led by public health, says PM Johnson

News Service Reuters

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that any changes to the country's quarantine policy would be based on public health guidance and not a desire to open up the economy.

"We will have a policy on air bridges that is based on public health," he told lawmakers in parliament as he announced an easing of some lockdown measures in England on Tuesday.

Britain has a 14-day quarantine policy in place for arrivals into the country from abroad, but the government has said it is looking at "air bridges" which would allow restriction-free travel between countries with low infection rates.
