All passengers returning from the UK must stay in a 14-day institutional quarantine from January 1 following the emergence of a new variant of coronavirus in the United Kingdom.

This was informed after a virtual meeting held on Monday night with Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam in the chair.

The UK returnees will have to stay at government-fixed hotels at their own cost.

However, passengers returning from other countries must carry Covid-negative certificates, according to the decision of the meeting.

Earlier, the Cabinet decided to keep the UK returnees on a 14-day mandatory quarantine.

“Every returnee, whoever arrives by London flights, will have to stay in quarantine. Even if he or she tested Covid-19 negative yesterday, the person will have to stay in a 14-day quarantine compulsorily,” said Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul while briefing reporters after the meeting.
