Anyone breaking hotel quarantine rules could face a €4,000 fine

An individual who breaks the new mandatory hotel quarantine could face a €4,000 fine.

The Bill was approved yesterday at a virtual Cabinet Minister meeting which will make hotel quarantines mandatory for people arriving into the country.

The rule will apply to passengers from 20 countries with a high incidence of new Covid-19 variants. The proposed Bill will see harsh penalties being issued to anyone who attempts to avoid compulsory detainment.

A month’s imprisonment or a €4,000 fine will be issued to anyone who either leaves the hotel without permission, takes risks with health or lives, or doesn’t take a Covid-19 PCR test.

People will only be allowed to leave their rooms for specified purposes like medical emergencies.
