To ask Her Majesty's Government how those entering England who are required to self-isolate are permitted to travel from their port of entry to their places of residence; and what measures are being taken to ensure that they do not infect others whilst travelling.

International arrivals to England who are required to self-isolate must travel directly from their port of entry to the location where they intend to self-isolate. Information about how passengers can travel safely is available online at GOV.UK. Passengers should only use public transport if they have no other option and must wear face coverings when travelling on public transport, unless exempt from the requirement to wear a face covering on public transport. Where a passenger is assessed as symptomatic, they will be advised not to use public transport. If necessary, transport will be arranged for them.
