The United Kingdom is implementing a new border policy for Govt-19

(CNN) – People going to the UK who have spent time in ‘high risk areas’ should be isolated in a facility run by the government as soon as they arrive in the area.

The new policy comes into effect on Monday for anyone who has been called a “red list” country for the past 10 days. This list includes 33 hotspots with variants of the Covit-19 in circulation.

To date, the government has reached agreements with 16 hotels, providing 4,963 rooms for the new isolated system. A further 58,000 rooms have been suspended, officials said.
