Travelers to Britain will be warned to self-isolate or face fine

The British government is expected to announce that anyone arriving in the United Kingdom  from abroad could be fined £1,000 if they fail to self-isolate for 14 days.

According to the BBC, health officials would be able to carry out spot checks to check whether people were complying.

The new rules, which will also apply to British people returning from abroad, are not expected to come into force until next month.

In a separate development, Schools in Northern Ireland will not begin to reopen to full year groups of pupils until late August at the earliest, Peter Weir, the education minister, has announced.
