The government is considering using rapid Covid-19 tests for tourists arriving at Irish airports to try and boost the sector.

 

The Sunday Times reports the measure could be used as an alternative to the current advice for 14 days of self-isolation.

 

Junior Minister Brendan Griffin says the idea's being explored and that it could be an "all round win" if it reassures potential tourists.

 

Countries like Austria and Greece already use airport testing to screen visitors for Covid 19.
