Outreach to those travelling from Brazil


You will be aware of the newly reported Brazilian variant of COVID.

  • All passengers who have arrived from Brazil in January are requested to come forward for a COVID-19 PCR test.  This test can be obtained by going to a GP and seeking a referral.  GPs have been alerted and will facilitate this without any charge.
  • These travellers are also strongly advised to self-isolate for 14 days from the date of arrival.
  • The HSE’s contracted isolation facility at the Citywest Hotel complex is available to those who are unable to self-isolate in their own homes for any reason and is an option for people from Brazil in this situation.
