UK considering setting quarantine rules by region, not by country - minister

Tue, 28th Jul 2020 13:15

LONDON, July 28 (Reuters) - Britain is looking at setting
quarantine rules for different regions within countries
overseas, but will continue to make decisions on a country-wide
basis for now, junior transport minister Charlotte Vere said on
Tuesday.

"For the time being we are taking the approach by country
for border measures, but it is the case that it could be that we
could put them in place for regions in the future," she told the
House of Lords. "We are not there yet but we are certainly
looking at it."
