When entering the UK, what do the 14-day isolation measures mean, and do they apply to me?

From 8 June, visitors and UK residents, when entering the UK either by plane, boat, or train, visitors, will be required to provide their journey, contact and accommodation details when they arrive. They must also self-isolate at their place of residence for the first 14 days. The only exception is anyone who is due to leave the UK before the 14 days are over. They can leave the UK providing they do so directly

However, residents of countries who are part of the “air bridge” do not need to isolate for 14 days. These countries are constantly under review; check the GOV.UK website for more information. Certain jobs also carry an exemption from the isolation requirement; again the GOV.UK website has a full list of these.
