Covid travel risk ratings: More regions in Ireland moved to amber

Regional map from this coming Saturday (29690600)

As of Saturday, a total of nine regions, including the Bahamas and Tenerife, will be ‘downgraded’ from red to amber.

And after going into a second lockdown earlier than the UK, five regions in Ireland – Westmeath, Laois, Kilkenny, Kerry and Dublin – will also now be classed as amber rather than red.

The Irish government introduced its highest level of restrictions on 21 October as part of a six-week lockdown.

Those measures, which will remain in place until the start of December, made Ireland the first European country to enter a second lockdown.

The UK followed suit on 5 November with Prime Minister Boris Johnson declaring that the national lockdown in England would end on 2 December. The majority of regions in the UK, however, are still categorised as red on Jersey’s travel list.

Meanwhile, Nepal and Mid Suffolk will also move from red to amber while Honduras and Moray will change from amber to green.

However, South Africa – which now has more
than 770,000 confirmed cases of the virus – will change from green to amber, as will Turkey and the Turks and Caicos islands.

Paraguay and Aberdeenshire will switch from amber to red.

Under the current system, all travellers to the Island must take a PCR test on their day of arrival and against on the fifth and tenth days, regardless of where they have travelled from.

However, those travelling from a green area only
have to isolate until they receive a negative result from their first test, while those coming from an amber area must isolate until they receive a negative result from their day-five test.

Passengers arriving from red areas have to isolate until they have a negative result from their day-ten test.

The length of isolation is based on the classification of places where someone has spent one or more nights in the previous 14 days.
