EU countries and US have been excluded from the mandatory hotel segregation list

Passengers from the United States and EU member states have not yet been subjected to mandatory hotel isolation.

The Ministry of Health announced the extension of compulsory hotel isolation to 26 countries and states instead of the 43 mentioned earlier in the week.

There has been a major dispute within the government over the Ministry of Health’s plans for compulsory hotel isolation for 43 countries, including the United States, France and Germany.

Foreign Secretary Simon Cowney and Health Secretary Stephen Donnelly discussed the plan on Thursday afternoon, including concerns about the right of EU citizens to travel freely and the organization’s ability to handle such numbers. Attorney General Mr. Has written to Donnelly about his legal concerns.

It is understood Mr. Mr Cowney opposed extending the isolationist need for these countries. Sources said Mr Donnelly continues to support the use of hotel isolation in these or other countries of great concern.

In a statement on Thursday evening, the Department of Health said consultations on the remaining countries and states, including the European Union and the United States, would be “considered” before the next government meeting.

“The ongoing response will address a wide range of issues, including operational capacity required to accommodate additional passengers and issues related to common travel areas, and the need to consult with our EU allies.
