ENGLAND HAS INTRODUCED new rules that could see people receive fines of up to £10,000 if they fail to self-isolate. 

This means that anyone who has tested positive or has been a close contact of a Covid-19 case and fails to quarantine could receive a hefty penalty.

There have been some calls for a similar system here too, to prevent the spread of the virus and to stop any flouting of rules. 

So today we want to know: Should people who fail to self-isolate be fined?


Poll Results:

Yes (11549)
No (2143)
I don't know (567)
