Mandatory hotel quarantine in Ireland began yesterday; first group of travellers arrived at designated facility

DUBLIN: Ireland’s mandatory hotel quarantine began yesterday for travellers from countries flagged as having a high risk of being exposed to the COVID-19 transmission. The first batch of people facing a mandatory hotel quarantine arrived at the designated facility yesterday.

About 20 passengers arrived at Dublin Airport yesterday. They were taken by bus to the first quarantine centre at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Santry. The bus was escorted by Army vehicles.

All travelers from one of the 33 high-risk countries will be required to spend 12 nights in a hotel for quarantine under the current legislation. If a person tests negative for the COVID-19 test on the tenth day of quarantine, their stay at the hotel can be reduced.

Travelers must book and pay for their lodging in a designated quarantine facility advance. The cost for an adult traveler for a 12-night stay inclusive of all services (board accommodation, ground transportation, security services and health and wellbeing services) is €1,875.

Any passenger arriving from another country who does not have a negative PCR test for COVID-19 will also be quarantined. Those passengers will have to pay 150 euro a day.

If an individual fails to comply with the legal requirement for mandatory hotel quarantine, they can face a fine of up to €2,500 and/or a six-month prison sentence.
