Going anywhere nice this year?
Fergal Bowers, RTÉ News Health Correspondent, writes:
‘It used to be the case that returning from a holiday abroad with a nice suntan was something to flaunt to friends and neighbours.
Arriving back, still in a colourful top and shorts, pulling a noisy suitcase along the road, was part of the ‘I’m home’ routine.
But not anymore.
With Covid-19 and the travel advice and restrictions, foreign holidays have taken on a clandestine element.
A newly-tanned face and body is not a good look these days. It gets heads turning and prompts questions.
So a quiet return, under cover of darkness, is the new way.
Any failure to self-isolate will be noticed in these very changed times….’
