Ireland delays easing of travel restrictions until July 20

Ireland will ease quarantine restrictions on people travelling from abroad on July 20, with people arriving from a green list of countries with low coronavirus rates to be exempt from isolating themselves for 14 days, transport minister Eamon Ryan said.

The government had said in June that the restrictions would be eased from July 9, but Ryan said this had been delayed due to concern about travel-related infections.

“A so-called green list... will be published on July 20, or prior to that,” Ryan said in an interview with Newstalk radio station on Sunday. “The green list will be operating after that” date, he said.

Neighbouring Britain on Friday ended coronavirus quarantines for people arriving in England from more than 50 countries.

Ryan said Ireland would drop the quarantine for countries whose infection rates “are similar if not better than our own.”
