•    been in contact with a person who has novel Coronavirus, or

•    attended a hospital/healthcare facility where patients with novel Coronavirus are being treated

AND

they feel well and do not have any symptoms of respiratory disease, they need to:

https://www2.hse.ie/conditions/coronavirus/coronavirus.html (correct of 25/2/20)

However

If in the past 14 days, an individual has:

·         travelled to Ireland from any of the identified areas above, or

isolate themselves (i.e. stay separate from other people) and phone their GP immediately – giving their GP their travel history and symptoms.
