COVID-19 SANITISATION PROCEDURE
The Townhouse is closed until the 5th March 2021 due developments in restrictions relating to COVID-19. We are monitoring the situation closely, and plan to reopen the Townhouse in March 2021 subject to the development of the Irish government's guidelines and restrictions.
PLEASE NOTE: All guests will be asked to complete a Covid-19 questionnaire & self-declaration form upon check-in with the following questions:
Have you been in close contact with anyone who is confirmed with having the Covid-19 virus?
Do you live in the same household with someone who has symptoms of Covid-19 or who has been in isolation within the last 14 days?
Do you have any of the following typical Covid-19 symptoms: fever, high temperature, persistent coughing or breathing difficulties / shortness of breath?
Have you returned to the Island of Ireland from another country within the last 14 days (if yes, please advise us of the details)? [Please note: The Irish Authorities advise anyone coming into Ireland, apart from Northern Ireland and individuals arriving in Ireland from locations with a security rating of ‘normal precautions’ (“green”), to restrict their movements for 14 days, and this includes citizens and residents returning to Ireland.]
You will be requested to leave the Townhouse if you answer YES to the above questions (1-3), and if you answer YES to question 4 in the case of arriving from a country that does not have a "green" security rating.
