Government Reveals Travel 'Green List' But Advises Against Non-Essential Trips
The Irish government has revealed the "green list" of countries to which people can travel without having to quarantine for two weeks upon returning to Ireland.
The 15 countries on the list are Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Gibraltar, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Monaco, Norway, San Marino and Slovakia.
The list will be reviewed every two weeks.
However, despite publishing the list, the government is still advising against non-essential overseas travel to any country, as avoiding non-essential overseas travel will help to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Ireland.
The government also said that it has agreed on new protocols to conduct random coronavirus tests on people arriving to Ireland from high-risk countries, and anyone who arrives to Ireland with symptoms of the virus will be tested and provided with accommodation until they receive their test results.
