PARIS (Reuters) -France will impose self-isolation measures for people coming from the United Kingdom due to the presence of COVID-19 variants in the country, French government spokesman Gabriel Attal said on Wednesday.

“France will set up compulsory isolation for people coming from the UK,” Attal told a news briefing after a cabinet meeting, adding that details would be given in “the coming hours”.

Germany’s public health institute declared Britain and Northern Ireland a virus variant region last week and required anyone entering the country from the United Kingdom to quarantine for two weeks on arrival.

Attal said the COVID-19 situation was still improving significantly in France.
