Tipperary hurlers will have to restrict their movements for the next two weeks when they return from a warm-weather training camp as the Irish Government ramps up its precautions against the spread of the coronavirus.

The panel, management and back-room team flew out to the Costa Blanca on Monday. The county board said they made the decision to go after "consideration of travel guidance".

A Tipperary spokesperson confirmed to RTÉ Sport that the bulk of the panel will fly into Shannon this evening and manager Liam Sheedy will seek guidance from the HSE on their next steps.

Earlier today, Minister for Health Simon Harris told RTÉ Radio 1's Morning Ireland programme that more advice is being given to people coming back from areas from where there have been significant coronavirus outbreaks.

Within Europe, all people coming back from Spain and Italy are being asked to restrict their movements for the next two weeks. That includes not going to work, and a general lessening of their social interactions.

"It is not quite self-isolate, but to restrict their movements," the Minister said.

"Anyone returning from Italy and Spain will be met by environmental health workers on their return at the airport and told to restrict their movements."
