UK: Heathrow Airport Is Now a Quarantine Prison

• Red Pill University and Wales Online

Over the last year, self-isolation has become a norm in society – not only in Wales but across the globe.

If you developed a new, continuous cough, came into contact with someone who has Covid, or even caught the virus yourself, chances are you've had to stay cooped up at home for 10 days and keep a distance from your loved ones.

But not many of us have experienced a much more restrictive form of self-quarantine that has arisen in response to the pandemic – a quarantine hotel.

Quarantine hotels were introduced by the UK government on the 15th February this year as a means to prevent the spread of the virus and its variants from countries and territories where travel to the UK is banned.

These are known as 'red list' locations and a list of them can be found on the government website . You can only travel to the UK from these countries if you're a British national, an Irish national, or anyone with residence rights in the UK.
