Dubai passengers who are returning to Scotland now have to quarantine for 10 days. The Scottish Government updated travel restrictions that came into force on Monday morning
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson said in a statement: "It is evident, both in Scotland and in countries across the world that the virus continues to pose real risks to health and to life and we need to interrupt the rise in cases.
The new rules include passengers who have travelled to Scotland from Dubai since January 3, from the date they arrived back in the country. Passengers will be required everyone to isolate for 10 days, even if they present a negative PCR test.
"Imposing quarantine requirements on those arriving in the UK is our first defence in managing the risk of imported cases from communities with high risks of transmission,” he added.
