TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, has accused the Government of overseeing what he called a quarantine fiasco after plans for air bridges from individual countries to and from Britain were thrown into doubt.
The BBC also reported that dozens of countries will be exempt from a travel quarantine from Monday. Currently, most people arriving into the UK from anywhere apart from the Republic of Ireland have to self-isolate for two weeks.
Manuel Cortes said:
"The Government's quarantine rules have been a fiasco from the onset. The fact is we did not stop people coming into our country when our infection rates were very high.
"Then in early June Priti Patel introduced a blanket quarantine period for all arrivals when many countries had, by this point, done a fair better job than our Government at controlling the spread of the virus.
"We have now been told for almost a week that a change of policy is on its way, without knowing the details.
"We need firm leadership to sort this out this escalating shambles. These Tory Ministers are totally out of touch."
