April 12, 2021 | 2 Comments

The Irish government has added a number of “high risk” countries – including Bermuda – to its mandatory hotel quarantine list, which means that “from next week, travelers from these places must spend 12 nights and pay at least €1,875 to stay at one of 24 hotels across the Republic.”

A BBC story said, “The Irish government has now identified 59 “high risk” countries.

“From next week, travellers from these places must spend 12 nights and pay at least €1,875 [£1,614] to stay at one of 24 hotels across the Republic. The measure will come into effect from 04:00 local time on 15 April. Mandatory hotel quarantine for some international travellers has been in place there since 26 March.

“At a meeting on Friday night, Irish government ministers discussed concerns over Covid-19 variants.

“These variants pose a significant risk to our fight against this disease and our vaccination programme,” said Irish Health Minister Stephen Donnelly.

“The cost of a 12-night stay is €1,875 [£1,614] for one person, €625 [£535] for another adult [or child aged over 12] sharing the room, €360 [£308] for a child aged 4 to 12, with no charge for infants.

“Countries added to the list on Friday are: Bangladesh, Belgium, France, Italy, Kenya, Luxembourg, Pakistan, Turkey, the USA, Canada, Armenia, Bermuda, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Curaçao, Maldives, Ukraine.”

    We should be doing the same. It’s clear it works in keeping COVID out of the community.

    The airport parking lot was full over Easter, this spike is long from over. Many of those returning residents will be infected and too many won’t isolate or quarantine properly. With plans to allow the Bermuda Day half marathon go on, it will be a super spreader event very much as the Christmas parade was.
