Official Report: Minutes of Evidence

Committee for Health, meeting on Thursday, 4 February 2021

Members present for all or part of the proceedings:

Mr Colm Gildernew (Chairperson)
Mrs Pam Cameron (Deputy Chairperson)
Ms Paula Bradshaw
Mr Jonathan Buckley
Mr Alan Chambers
Ms Órlaithí Flynn
Ms Carál Ní Chuilín


Ms Elaine Colgan, Department of Health

Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (Amendment No. 4) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2021

The Chairperson (Mr Gildernew): This SR removes all countries from the list of places from which travellers are exempt from the requirement to self-isolate. It requires those arriving here from outside the common travel area to self-isolate unless specifically exempt and removes exemptions relating to certain occupational groups.

Do members have any further issues that they wish to raise in connection with that statutory rule? No? Therefore, I ask members to agree formally that the Committee for Health has considered SR 2021/9, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (Amendment No. 4) Regulations 2021, and has no objection to the rule. Are we agreed?

Members indicated assent.
