We have been clear that people should arrange their accommodation before they travel to the UK and the vast majority of travellers have complied.

For the small minority who don’t, the Government will support them in finding appropriate accommodation, upon arrival, and this will be at their own expense.

In the scenario where an arrival presents (at the UK border) as symptomatic, and they do not have suitable accommodation, they will be housed in a government facility for the duration of their self-isolation.
