Location of your quarantine
You may propose your own home, a property which friends or family are willing to loan to you at your own expense or a property you are willing to rent privately at your own expense.
The purpose of this questionnaire is to enable proper officers to establish if the property is suitable. If suitable you or your nominated person will be expected to display the appropriate signage at the property, this can be collected from the Environmental Heath Team before arrival or issued on arrival at the airport.
A proper officer will ensure the property you identified to quarantine is fit for purpose.
