Travel restrictions likely to remain in place until July 20th

Restrictions on international travel as a result of the coronavirus could be left in place until at least July 20th.

The cabinet will meet today to discuss travel restrictions.

The Government was supposed to be unveiling a green list this week, of countries deemed safe to travel to from July 9th, based on the handle they have on the virus.

However it’s been postponed until July 20th, amid concerns it could lead to a rise in the number of imported cases.

Airlines and the tourism sector have called for an easing of the 14 day quarantine rule, but it seems the message from Government for now at least, will continue to be to avoid non essential travel abroad.
