BBC reports UK airlines have been told the government will impose a 14-day quarantine for anyone arriving in the UK from any country apart from the Republic of Ireland to try to avoid a second peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Travellers arriving in the UK will have to provide the address and then self-isolate at a private residence. It is not clear if non-UK residents will be allowed to stay in rented private accommodation.

"We need to see the details of what they are proposing", said Airlines UK, which represents British Airways, EasyJet and other UK-based airlines, in a statement.
