Woman forced to quarantine but husband free after returning from France two days apart


A man is free to live his life while his partner will have to self-quarantine in the house they share as they returned from France two days apart.Daniel Sutton returned from vacation on Saturday at 11 p.m. – five hours before a 14-day quarantine period went into effect.

Her partner Iona Smith is due to arrive home on Monday after spending extra time with her French family, which means she will have to self-isolate for two weeks.

Despite the fact that he will be sharing a house in Glasgow with her, Daniel does not have to isolate himself under government rules.

The people who live with these people in quarantine do not need to self-isolate, unless they are traveling with them.

This does not include Brits who returned to the country separately on either side of the quarantine limit.

Daniel told Mirror Online, “I work as a delivery guy for Asda and they’ve checked (the rules) pretty thoroughly, as they can’t wait for me to get back to work.

“I go to work every day. I also understand that I can still go out to pubs and restaurants, which I obviously will not do because it seems wrong to me. “

Iona is frustrated at being caught in the lockdown

Daniel said Iona, a newly graduated speech-language pathologist, was irritated by the rules.

“She’s really frustrated with the whole situation given the ends of the lockdown,” he said.

“She can’t even do a single exercise a day like we could when we were initially locked out.”

They should stay in a well-ventilated room with a window to the outside that can be opened, separate from other people in their house.

They stepped back in time with thousands of Britons vacationing in France when the government announced, with just over 24 hours’ notice, that France was put back on the “red list” for travel.

However, many Brits were unable to make it until 4 a.m. or decided to stay in the middle of a crazy dashboard which saw fully booked Eurotunnel trains and plane ticket prices skyrocket. , which means they will have to self-isolate for 14 days upon their return.
