We are urgently calling on you, the government, to immediately strengthen the quarantine measures for arrivals from the USA and other Covid-19 Hotspots.

In recent days, we have seen and heard multiple testimonies from concerned citizens regarding tourists arriving to Ireland from the USA and flouting quarantine advice.

With 1,746 Irish people dead with Covid-19 to date, this is unacceptable. 

We immediately need a strict 14 day quarantine imposed on any arrivals into Ireland.

Strict, mandatory quarantines on inbound travellers have been implemented in several other countries around the world experiencing this crisis, and importantly, they’ve been successful.

It has been proven to save lives.

We know where the threat of a second wave of COVID-19 is most likely to come from, offshore, as that is where most of the cases are.

This appeal is urgent.

Experts such as epidemiologist Dr. Sam McConkey are calling for a strengthening of quarantine measures and policing to ensure we don’t nullify any success our domestic lockdown measures have had. 

Healthcare workers and Irish citizens are alarmed at the lackadaisacal attitude of some tourists  and some citizens returning to Ireland to the quarantine advice.

This is a defining moment in our history and in the leadership of our country. 

After the sacrifices we’ve all made in recent months, with parents home-schooling their children, grandparents not able to see their children or grandchildren or anyone else, people unable to attend their loved ones' funerals, healthcare workers reaching walls of exhaustion and isolating themselves away from their families, business shutting their doors and people losing their incomes, with 1,746 Irish people dead, to date with Covid-19, we are urging you to do everything in your power to eradicate this virus and save lives.
