Travel industry expects mandatory hotel quarantine to be introduced ‘imminently’

Travel industry sources have told Sky News they expect mandatory hotel quarantine to be introduced imminently, as the government tries to suppress new variants of coronavirus.

They anticipate an announcement could come as soon as Tuesday, but even those close to discussions remain unclear how broad the restrictions will be.

Sources believe differing views among ministers over whether restrictions should apply to arrivals from all countries to the UK, or simply those from a prescribed list.

While hotel groups are ready to help house thousands of arrivals, the move will be another hammer blow to the travel industry, signalling that unfettered overseas travel is unlikely to return this summer.
