The authorities decided to take this step so that people could return to work more quickly and thereby help the economy to recover as quickly as possible.
The UK government has decided to shorten the period of self-isolation for those arriving from abroad and for those who have come into contact with those infected with the coronavirus. The period of self-isolation will be reduced from 14 days to ten days.
The innovation will come into force on Monday, December 14. It will apply across England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is noted that the self-isolation period has already been shortened in Wales.
Reduced lockdown time will help people get back to work and school quicker, which will have an impact on economic recovery.
Britain will scrap lockdown in December and move to a system of local restrictions. The new plan is designed to get the economy “safely into spring” in the face of a pandemic.
