Global travellers could face fines of £1,000 if they break the UK's planned new coronavirus rules to self-isolate for 14 days after arriving in the country.
Home Secretary Priti Patel will give more details at the daily briefing later in the day.
Separate enforcement rules will be set by the devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Much of the population, especially the members of the education workers union and the parents of students, are opposed to reopening schools, fearing that a second peak of the epidemic will occur.
The new measure will be reviewed every three weeks.
The government is expected to announce that all worldwide arrivals, including returning Britons, will be required to self-isolate for 14 days and provide details of where they will be staying to the authorities.
Mr Lewis additionally confirmed The Telegraph's story that spot checks would be imposed on all travellers getting into the United Kingdom as a part of new quarantine measures.
Officials have said until such time as the Foreign Office lifts the advice against all but essential travel, holidaymakers should take that advice into account and bear in mind implications for their trip and any conditions on their holiday insurance.
Officials said that those the new entrant is staying with would not need to quarantine, but they should avoid contact with each other where possible.
Arrivals from the common travel area including Ireland and the Channel Islands will be exempted as will the 12,000 road haulage and freight workers who bring food, medical and other vital supplies into the UK.
But Home Office chief scientific adviser John Aston defended the quarantine plans, and said border restrictions would have had a "negligible" effect if imposed earlier.
The measure will force passengers to fill in a form providing their contact and travel information so they can be traced if infections arise.
Spot checks - The Border Force will undertake checks at the border and may refuse entry to any non-British citizen who refuses to comply with these regulations and is not resident in the UK.
They will also be contacted throughout the 14 day period to make sure they are adhering to the quarantine guidelines.
Britain is now piloting a contact tracing smartphone app to better identify cases and the spread of the virus nationally.
France says it may quarantine people arriving from an area "where the virus is circulating", but it has not published a list of targeted areas. The broadcaster also reports that Australian officials want the country to be exempted from the restrictions, referring to its travellers as "low risk".
