“Over the past five days, we have seen an extraordinary increase in virus outbreaks across the country, significantly increasing the level of risk associated with the inter-generational mix that is commonly experienced during the Christmas holidays.

– Instead of restricting your movements, you should now isolate yourself for 14 days from the date of arrival in Ireland.
– You must schedule a Kovid test as soon as possible five days after you arrive in Ireland.
– If at any stage you develop Kovid symptoms, call your GP and let them know about your recent trip from Great Britain.
– If your test results do not “detect the virus”, continue to isolate yourself for a period of 14 days, as you may still be developing symptoms and protect others from the dangers.
HSE Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Colm Henry said: “This is more rigorous advice than the standard” restrict movement “advice that applies to those traveling to Ireland, but our priority is to keep our friends and family safe at Christmas.
“I urge everyone who has traveled to heed this advice and to show this attitude seen throughout the Pandemic.”
