LONDON (Reuters) - Passengers travelling from Luxembourg to Scotland will be required to quarantine for 14 days, the Scottish government said on Thursday, citing an increased number of coronavirus cases.

"This decision is based on the latest available data from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and it gives another clear indication that the virus is active and still spreading," Scotland's Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf said in a statement.

Scotland has a semi-autonomous status and sets quarantine rules independently from England, where rules are set by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
