Cabinet agrees hotel quarantine

The Cabinet has signed-off on primary legislation governing the introduction of a mandatory hotel quarantine for incoming passengers into the country.quarantine

The legislation, which was evaluated during an incorporeal meeting, sets out a financial penalty of €4,000, as well as a possible month in prison, for first-time offenders who do not adhere to the mandatory quarantine rules. 
A second offence would see fines of up to €4,500 or three months in prison, or both. A third offence would see fines of up to €5,000 or six months in prison, or both.
The move will be in place initially for those arriving in the State from 20 countries and anyone who does not have a negative test for Covid-19.
It is agreed that those who stay in mandatory quarantine for 14 days will have to pay for their stay and will take a number of tests for Covid-19 during that time.
Private security firms are likely to be involved in the day-to-day running of the facilities, but gardaí will have a role if any laws are breached.

Press Up funds Arts Centre

The Press Up Entertainment Group is funding a new Arts Centre in a premises adjacent to its Dean Hotel in Dublin.Deanhotel
The Dean Arts Studio is a new, multi-disciplinary hub located on Harcourt Street in the heart of Dublin city centre. It is a practical response to the contraction of accessible, affordable city workspaces for artists of all disciplines, due in part to the loss of cultural spaces through development.
Both established and emerging practitioners across visual arts, literature, photography, sound, music and more will begin to take up residency this year. The Studio will be fully funded by The Dean Dublin and Press Up Hospitality Group, and the fourteen studios and office spaces will be gifted to artists, cultural institutions and arts organisations.
 IMMA and The Dean Dublin are partnering through IMMA’s Artists’ Residency Programme by programming four artistic practices through the provision of studio spaces at the Dean Arts Studio.
