British travellers to Belgium may face quarantine measures upon their return to the UK, The Times reports on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson pointed out that continental Europe is in the grip of a second wave of coronavirus (Covid-19) infections and that the government is ready to take action "where it is necessary.”
This quarantine for people arriving from Belgium could start as soon as Wednesday, according to The Times.

Quarantines reportedly could also be imposed on people returning from Luxembourg, and the UK is “keeping a close eye” on Croatia, according to The Times.
As of Wednesday morning, quarantine for Belgians was not yet mandatory.
