Have you or someone you know travelled from Brazil in recent weeks?
To help prevent and stop the Brazilian variant of COVID-19:
·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.
