Travelers entering the United Kingdom will have to self-isolate for 14 days beginning June 8, the government announced.
The new quarantine requirements were expected and are an effort to stop a second wave of infections.
U.K. nationals will also be required to quarantine.
Spot checks could be conducted for those who enter on or after June 8 to enforce the new rule, and anyone who breaks quarantine will be issued a 1,000 pound fine.
