Cabinet Approves Measures To Ensure Those Travelling To Ireland Self Isolate On Arrival

it will be a criminal offence for anyone arriving into the country not to fill in a locator form spelling out where they'll be self-isolating.

Cabinet Ministers approved the decision this afternoon and there will be spot checks done to make sure people are isolating.

The penalties for non compliance will be a maximum 6 month jail term or a fine of 2,500 euro.

However, it won't apply to people coming into the country from Northern Ireland.
