Mandatory hotel quarantine for UK nationals returning from 'red list' countries.
Arrivals from much of South America and southern Africa, as well as Portugal, will be required to self-isolate at government-arranged hotel accommodation for 10 days upon arrival in England.
They will be met at the airport and transported directly to their quarantine accommodation.
Boris Johnson said the new measures are aimed at preventing new mutant COVID strains from reaching the UK.
The government added the measures in addition to temporarily closing all UK travel corridors, requiring all arrivals to test negative for Covid up to 72 hours before departure, and requiring arrivals from all other destinations to self-isolate at home for 10 days.
