Taoiseach states it’s too soon for British tourists to enter Ireland without two-week quarantine

Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said that it is too soon for British citizens to holiday in Ireland without going into a two-week quarantine.

Martin said that Ireland’s list of green countries would be determined by those who are at “Ireland’s level of disease control of below”.

“In certain parts of the UK there are still difficulties where certain areas have had to go into lockdown and so on and further severe restrictions… Caution is the watch word here,” he continued.

The Taoiseach highlighted that the government is keeping close tabs to what is happening across Europe and the world.
