Random Covid-19 testing will be introduced at airports across the country.

It's one of at least 5 measures for airports announced by the Health Minister yesterday evening, but a date for when it will begin hasn't been announced yet.

Stephen Donnelly says it's because those involved in the testing programme have been focusing on the large number of clusters in the likes of meat plants and direct provision centres.

In addition to random testing, the travel locator forms will become electronic with stricter follow-ups - while the green list of countries will be also reviewed.
