Covid-19 (Health): Statements
Ossian Smyth (Dún Laoghaire, Green Party)
I suppose I can ask about it at a meeting of the Covid-19 committee. I want to speak to international travel within Europe. Every country has its own road map and part of that is reopening international travel, and every country is coming up with different rules. There is a lack of symmetry or reciprocity in this. A person may be quarantined on arriving in a country but would not be quarantined on returning home, which makes no sense. Will the Minister update us on efforts to co-ordinate the strategy across Europe?
