Travellers to Ireland from Great Britain must take Covid tests for five days
The Guardian says People who travel to Ireland from Great Britain will be required to undertake daily lateral flow tests for five consecutive days after arrival, the Irish government announced on Thursday night.
The tests will be in addition to the recently announced requirement that travellers to the republic have a negative PCR or lateral flow test before boarding a ferry or plane.
In a statement, the taoiseach’s office said that the first test should be taken on the day of arrival and, if any symptoms of Covid emerge or if a passenger has a positive result from a lateral flow test, they should seek a PCR test and self-isolate.
