Commenting on the announcement, UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “The basis of any quarantine conditions must be science-led and backed with a clear set of criteria for the length of their imposition. The imposition of a quarantine period will inevitably damage international visitor travel, and the longer it is in place, the more damage it will wreak.

“Leisure and business tourism is a significant driver of our economy and will be key to recovery. While beating the virus is the paramount concern, it is important that measures imposed are both proportionate to risk and workable in practice.

“There needs to be, as a bare minimum, an indication of how long measures might be in place, to allow businesses to plan, and criteria should be set out, so that we know what criteria must be fulfilled to enable removal or change to quarantine.”
