Where will the overseas arrivals quarantine?
Who pays for the quarantine? Traveller or taxpayer?
There’s big bucks in this business, money will change hands.
Suggest use the large Army tents with rows and rows of beds (but with no medical equipment or medical personnel) as quarantine centers.
New arrivals to the isle can be dumped into these facilities and kept there for as many days as required under armed Army surveillance.
