In July 2020, the Government released a very limited list of countries (“Green List”) where you can travel from without having to undergo the mandatory restriction of movements. The inclusion of countries on this list is based on the current epidemiological situation and public health information.
More recently, COVID-19 related restrictions has been re-imposed on some Irish counties. This is as a result of an increasing number of cases in these areas.
It is extremely likely that the restrictions of certain counties and countries will continue to change in the coming weeks and months and we ask families to please adhere to local and national guidelines. As a result, we will unfortunately not be allowing anyone into visit loved ones who falls under the following categories:
- Lives in the following Irish counties (until restrictions are eased):
- Has recently come from a country not on the “Green List” (e.g. USA) and has not completed the mandatory restriction of movements for 14 days preceding their visit to Highfield
Please note this does not apply if you are visiting for end of life care/palliative purposes and an appropriate risk assessment will be conducted during your visit.
