When will holidaymakers have to self-isolate?
The measure came into effect from midnight on Saturday, meaning that from yesterday all travellers arriving in Northern Ireland will have to quarantine themselves for 14 days.
What is the self-isolation advice for travellers returning to Northern Ireland?
If you are required to self-isolate, you should head straight home or to your accommodation and remain in the one place for the full 14 days. You should not go to work, school or public areas.
You should only use public transport if you have no other option and if you do, you should wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth and stay two metres away from other people.
You should not go shopping - ask relatives or friends to collect groceries and medication for you.
If you're travelling to Northern Ireland for less than 14 days, you will be expected to self-isolate for the length of your stay. The people you're staying with do not need to self-isolate with you if they have not travelled from outside the UK or have been in the CTA for longer than 14 days before coming to Northern Ireland - unless you or a member of your household develop symptoms of coronavirus. Anyone who develops symptoms of a cough, fever or loss of taste or smell must self-isolate.
What happens at the end of the 14-day isolation period?
If you do not have any coronavirus symptoms after 14 days, you can stop self-isolating.
What should people do if they are already in Spain?
People currently on holiday in Spain have been encouraged to follow the local rules, return home as normal and check the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) travel advice pages on gov.uk for further information. The FCO is not advising those already travelling in Spain to leave. Abta - the UK's travel trade association - has advised customers in the country to continue their holidays.
Does quarantine apply if the holidaymaker has been to a Spanish island?
Quarantine measures will apply to those returning from mainland Spain, the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Graciosa) and the Balearic Islands, such as Majorca and Ibiza, the Department for Transport confirmed.
A Co Antrim couple due to fly out to Spain yesterday had to cancel their holiday at the 11th hour after the country was removed from the quarantine exemption list at short notice.
