Dr. Ronan Glynn, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, at the Department of Health has said the Delta variant is now dominant across the EU and, in recent weeks they have noticed a sharp increase in the level of travel-related cases of COVID-19.

He says that as disease incidence increases both here in Ireland, and across Europe, it is important that if people  intend on travelling, they are aware of the disease profile in the area they are visiting, as well as the public health measures in place locally.

Dr Glynn is also asking that if someone has recently returned to Ireland and has any symptoms of Covid,  including fever, cough, headache, sore throat or a blocked or runny nose they should self-isolate and get tested without delay.
