British Home Secretary Priti Patel announced that Brits returning from visits to amber countries will be given a visit to the IACS (Isolation Assurance and Compliance Service) to verify that they are complying with the 10-day home quarantine required by law .
She said there would be 70,000 checks a week fined up to £ 10,000 for people traveling when they should have been.
The IACS was improved after it was reported in parliament that at least 75 percent of returning travelers who must be quarantined at home had not actually been screened. The opposition Labor Party said the British were “fully exposed to the virus” through government inaction and incompetence. According to job advertisements in the UK, the average annual salary for IACS inspectors is around £ 20,000. The police are only called on the doorstep if the inspectors are unable to deal with it.
