Risk assessment is dynamic and the list of countries will be kept under constant review and may be amended.

The PHEOC has also examined the progress of the epidemic in other countries and identified the following countries where the epidemic appears to be under good control and therefore recommended to the Public Health Commissioner that entry from these countries could be considered with effect from mid July 2020.
The PHEOC will continue to monitor the situation in these and other countries to further advise the Public Health Commissioner.
