Plans to force arrivals from dozens of high-risk countries to spend 10 days in a "quarantine hotel" – at their own cost – are expected to be confirmed later today. The move, which appears to have popular support but is vehemently opposed by the travel industry, comes amid fears over new Covid variants. It will put holidays to Portugal, South America, and large parts of Africa off the cards, and cause heartbreak for tens of thousands of Britons will family and friends overseas. According to one estimate, the move could cost the UK economy £548 million every day. The list of countries is likely to include the 30 from which travel is already severely restricted, but four more destinations – the UAE, Kenya, Ethiopia and Nigeria – may also be added. Portugal will be the most significant country to face the harsh new rules, with around 2.5m Britons visiting each year. However, the addition of the UAE would also throw the travel plans of hundreds of thousands into disarray – some 1.5m people visited the country in 2019, with most heading to Dubai. Other key destinations expected to feature include South Africa, which welcomes around 430,000 Britons annually, Brazil (155,000), Mauritius (140,000), Argentina (125,000), Nigeria (117,000) and Kenya (100,000). As things stand, arrivals from the rest of the world are still required to show evidence of a negative Covid test, taken in the previous 72 hours, as well as self-isolate at home for 10 days (though this can be cut to as little as five with a second negative test).

Thanks to fluctuating food costs in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic—and more specifically, the cost of milk, which experienced major price highs and lows last year when schools and restaurants closed and stockpiling at grocery stores began—the price of parmesan is expected to increase considerably this year, experts say."Back in April 2020, cheesemakers were feeling the enormous loss of retail and foodservice business due to COVID," explains Liz Thorpe, international cheese expert and author of The Book of Cheese. Then, add the milk shortage that started happening in June, and the cost of making milk-based cheeses skyrocketed. (Related: Grocery Shortages To Expect in 2021, According to Experts.)Of course, you may have already experienced the effects of this while shopping at the grocery store. As Schuman Cheese CEO Neal Schuman explains: "Younger, fresh, cheeses like mozzarella, cream cheeses, and things like that would have gone up in price pretty much in tandem with these increases nine to 12 months ago."But considering it takes cheeses like parmesan at least 10 months to age before they're available for purchase, the price hikes will only start to be felt now.The cost of producing parmesan at the Schuman Cheese plant in Turtle Lake, Wisc. went up 40-60% last year, says Schuman. So parmesan that was produced in March, April, and May 2020—which is now being shipped to distributors and being added to grocery store shelves—will carry a heftier price tag.Specifically, Schuman believes that, starting in April 2021, the price of parmesan will go up by $1.50-$2 for a pound and about $0.70-$0.75 for a wedge—and the surge will last for six months or longer.While it's certainly not ideal, Schuman believes people will still pay for these milk-based, aged cheeses. "I would guess it may slow down consumers' purchase patterns," he says. "But people will, in all likelihood, pay the increase because, ultimately, it's still delivering an experience and flavor."Plus, there really isn't a great alternative. "Parmesan is typically used for grating, and in order to get a hard texture for grating, a cheese has to be aged," says Thorpe. "Comparable or alternative cheeses are going to face a similar problem. It becomes an issue of, 'If you want this, you're going to have to pay more for it.'"If all this cheese talk has made you hungry, check out the 13 Best Recipes for Cheese Lovers.
