More from the Irish Times

Government officials were last night said to be “urgently” working on the legal and operational arrangements for mandatory quarantining for some passengers travelling from abroad.

Under the plans there will be mandatory quarantining at a designated facility for passengers who cannot provide a negative pre-departure Covid-19 test as well as all those travelling from Brazil and South Africa due to new variants of the virus there.

Other passengers will be required by law to quarantine at home. It is hoped the measures will be in place early next month.

The Department of Health has been tasked with most of the work. It is liaising with the departments of justice, transport and foreign affairs. The Attorney General is advising on any potential legal issues that arise. Applying mandatory quarantine measures to EU or UK citizens requires changes to primary legislation.

OK..... This is NOT going to work. Voice of experience with quaratine here. First, people who pass a covid test when they get on the plane can fail one at the end of the flight. Ask a bunch of Tennis players in quarantine with us for the last two weeks. Second. isolating at home doesnt work. People wont do it and it only take one. And NO ONE should be allowed to land until 100% of the passengers (and the flight crews) are all isolated properly and guarded 24/7 by professionals and not rent a cops.
That is the minimum effective standard...😷

[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] Sadly I think you're right. When it comes to highly infectious diseases it only takes one person to break quarantine...

That’ll be fine as long as it’s for the rare few.
But you have to ask why would any nation accept an aircraft full of 240 people [i]knowing[/i] that most probably won’t have had jab#1 ?

One wonders what happens when several aircraft want to fly into Dublin with 1000 people all there on business with no connections other than their hotels and business contacts
