Israel will require incoming travelers from the United Kingdom to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival under new coronavirus guidelines, information on an Israeli government website showed on Sunday.
The infection rate in the UK has risen sharply in recent weeks, prompting British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to introduce tighter restrictions and local lockdowns.
The UK had been one of 31 "green" countries from which travelers who meet a series of special requirements could enter Israel without a mandatory quarantine period.
The UK's status will change to "red" on Oct. 23, Israeli health ministry information showed.
