Political parties from the opposition have called for the introduction of mandatory hotel quarantine for all arrivals into the country’s (ferry)ports and airports.

Mandatory hotel quarantine legislation, which would see passengers from 20 countries stay in facilities for two weeks upon arrival into the country, was brought before the Dáil today by Health Minister Stephen Donnelly.

While opposition parties were in favour of legislation on mandatory hotel quarantine being finally brought before the house, Labour, Sinn Féin and the Social Democrats will propose amendments that all non-essential arrivals be put into mandatory hotel quarantine.

Passengers may leave quarantine if they arrive into the country with a negative test and a further negative test again on day 10.

Minister for Transport reports RTE News, has said a mandatory quarantine is not possible to enforce for those entering Ireland but stricter control measures are set to be introduced.

Eamon Ryan said those measures will include an electronic register and testing of some travellers.

Speaking on RTÉ's Today with Sarah McInerney, he said the advice remains that in the wider interests of public health it is best to stay in Ireland and not to travel abroad.

He said the Irish approach to Covid-19 is working and the quarantine measures in place are working, but authorities need to remain vigilant and continue to adapt, monitor and review the situation as more people start flying.

He said if the number of cases of Covid-19 rise as a result of international travel "we will have to tighten restrictions".
