Quarantine: What do new UK travel guidelines mean for my holidays?
Boris Johnson says mandatory 14-day self-isolation will apply to inbound airline passengers

I think it basically means you can have two weeks in the sun followed by two weeks cooped up at home.

Unless you go to France. Or the Republic of Ireland. Seems people arriving from those places are exempt from quarantine.

Of course, the two week quarantine only applies to people arriving by air... not by ferry or by Eurostar / Eurotunnel. Hey ho!

'It's all Greek to us': what the papers say about Boris Johnson's lockdown exit plan
Four days after many newspapers looked forward to a widespread easing of restrictions on ‘Magic Monday’, the story looks very different

A little unkind to Greece, who seem to have managed things rather well, actually.

Coronavirus: Public will be 'encouraged' to wear face coverings from Wednesday

The government will encourage the use of face coverings from Wednesday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has confirmed.

Speaking to ITV News, Mr Raab said those who may be in closed spaces with people from other households will be encouraged to wear a covering on their face.

He said: "There’s a difference between masks which are used in a clinical setting for doctors, nurses, care home workers and face coverings - the kind of DIY cloth mask that someone might put together at home.

"In relation to face coverings, they don’t really have much of an impact in terms of protecting the person wearing it but they can provide an incremental mitigation of the risk of transmission to other people."
