The Prime Minister said travelers entering the UK from Red List countries should be able to cover their costs in relation to the mandatory hotel quarantine, even if they have to stay an additional eight days.

Boris Johnson was asked at a press conference whether travelers who tested positive for the coronavirus during the 10-day quarantine with tests performed on the second and eighth day should pay to extend their stay.

Those who test positive must remain in hotel quarantine for an additional 10 days after testing, meaning that for guests who test positive on day 8, an additional eight days will be added on top of their initial stay of 10 days.

Mr Johnson responded by reminding the nation that it is currently illegal to go on vacation abroad anyway, and said of travelers returning from high-risk countries: We expect them to be able to cover their costs.

He did not say how much additional quarantine people who tested positive for Covid-19 would have to pay.

For an adult traveling alone, a positive result on the eighth day would mean they had to shell out an additional 1,216 on top of the original 1,750 for the 10-day quarantine package 2966 in total.

Mr Johnson avoided answering the second part of the question: what if the traveler just can’t afford the extra days in quarantine?

So far, the government’s only concession to affordability is to allow travelers who can prove they are already receiving some sort of income support benefit to defer payment and pay their bill in 12 monthly installments.

In Scotland, where hotel quarantine has been introduced for all international arrivals, not just for Red List destinations, the government has said that a managed isolation welfare fund will be set up for travelers who do not can not afford the program.

However, no further details have been released on who is eligible and how to apply, although the Managed Quarantine program has already been launched on February 15.
