Travelers returning from UAE should self-isolate


Last month, Lock said in an Instagram post that he was heading to town because “incredible opportunities have presented themselves.”

Dubai has also been in the spotlight after a number of UK-based athletes tested positive for the virus following travel there.

Celtic’s decision to travel to Dubai for training camp should be subject to further scrutiny after an unidentified player tested positive for coronavirus.

The team and staff were tested upon their return to Scotland on Friday.

Foreign training camps abide by the rules of professional sport, but Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon asked last week whether Celtic had adhered to social distancing guidelines after seeing photos of his hotel.

Earlier this month, Formula 1 driver McLaren Lando Norris tested positive for coronavirus while on vacation in Dubai.

Manchester United boss Casey Stoney told BBC News she was “sincerely sorry” for giving her players permission to travel to Dubai during the holiday season.

Her team’s Women’s Super League (WSL) game in Everton on Sunday was postponed due to cases of Covid-19 and injuries in the host camp.

Stoney, whose side was covered by Level 3 rules at the time, said the trip was under government guidelines and at least one of his players had made it to Dubai.

Players from other WSL teams who had also visited Dubai, including Manchester City and Arsenal, have seen games canceled after positive coronavirus tests.
